Internationalisation of the curriculum (IoC), the process by which educational institutions prepare students for living and working in a globalised world, is more evident in policy than in practice at most universities. This workshop combines theoretical perspectives on organisational change with practical insights drawn from a range of disciplines, institutions and countries into how all university staff, regardless of position, can work strategically toward IoC. Short presentations will be combined with discussion, interactive learning and creative problem-solving activities to create a truly practical experience. You will have the opportunity to examine a range of resources and develop an action plan tailored to your own situation.

Learn about theories and strategies relevant to IoC as an organisational-change process
