Giving students a voice: threshold concepts in internationalisation

All institutions offer internationalisation activities to students in order to prepare them for a complex global environment. But what threshold concepts do students need to grasp or experience, at home or abroad, to become a global citizen? How do you offer experiences to students that are truly transformational? This research-based session will provide you with new insights into the threshold concepts of internationalisation of students.
