Session 10.03

Demystifying the role of the academic discipline in internationalisation

  • Friday 29 Sept
  • Rotterdam C, Level 2, Rotterdam Ahoy
  • Level: Intermediate
  • Related Expert Communities Internationalisation at Home

Academics, the main agents in curriculum development, understand and approach internationalisation very differently depending on their academic discipline, yet there is little research on this. Engaging academics in sustainable internationalised curricula requires a deeper understanding of their rationales, strategies and realities. Join us as we explore discipline-specific perspectives, practices and pathways in order to apply a new understanding to everyday practice.
