Creating communities of practitioners in internationalising curricula makes for more sustainable and contextualised professional development. In this session, we will show how a collaborative and network-based approach in three projects has led to the creation of communities of trainers, lecturers and educational consultants, within and across institutions and countries. We will invite you to start your own learning community.
