Beyond the road blocks: three perspectives on internationalisation of the curriculum

The successful implementation of internationalisation of the curriculum in universities is often challenged by a lack of shared understanding about what works best. This is further complicated in contexts with shifting priorities, leadership turnover, reluctant stakeholder engagement, and limited resource and funding arrangements. In this session, commonalities as well as contextual differences are highlighted from three perspectives, and key learnings shared from literature and practice.
