All in it together: collaborating for intercultural learning

Internationalisation strategies have long aimed at developing students’ intercultural competence. With research showing that intercultural learning requires experience and support for reflection, how do you build and diversify support options? What if you feel alone with your initiative? This session presents three examples of collaboration for improving students’ intercultural learning opportunities: a national network, an international cross-sector project and structured online collaboration.
