‘Why do they just not get it?’ Even the most basic internationalisation priorities are ignored or devalued by key stakeholders at your institution, yet you can’t hope to succeed – or even do your job – without internal support. This workshop explores how different values, assumptions and behaviours within an institution can inhibit the cultivation of support for internationalisation. As a group, we’ll share strategies for engaging key internal stakeholders by recognising what motivates them. You’ll take away from this workshop concrete strategies for building internal advocacy for internationalisation in your own institutional within as little as six months.
