The Internationalisation of Higher Education ELT508


The world is becoming increasingly interconnected as literal and metaphoric boundaries worldwide diminish. The purpose of this unit is to enhance your capacity to research and develop innovative practices that prepare students for their future roles as global citizens and professionals operating in international and multicultural contexts. This is achieved through exploration of a range of issues influencing the design, delivery and experience of higher education within this changing global landscape, and critical reflection on the way our cultural roots influence our beliefs about, and approaches to teaching and learning. In particular, you will explore theoretical and practical aspects of: competing rationales for internationalisation; internationalisation of the curriculum (including culturally inclusive pedagogy); internationalisation as a reflexive practice; and the graduate as global citizen.
