First Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching / NTU Global Internationalising the Curriculum Conference

Thursday 14 July 2016

Internationalising the curriculum is a common goal in the strategies of Universities across the globe, but in many subject areas implementing international objectives and opportunities in the design and delivery of the curriculum remains a challenge.

Research suggests that academic staff involvement is key to effective implementation of internationalising strategies, and essential for ensuring student engagement with the international opportunities and support structures that are made available to them. This is especially the case for initiatives designed to increase internationalisation at home, as these require careful, contextualised curriculum adaptations.

For this one-day conference, there was a range of papers and posters presented that explored strategies for facilitating academic engagement with internationalising the curriculum across a range of disciplinary areas and strategies which embed international learning experiences through initiatives often referred to an internationalisation at home.
