Event details

The Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) warmly invites you to attend the third annual Internationalisation of the Curriculum Conference.

The Internationalising the Curriculum Conference will present papers that consider how ideas associated with the ‘students as co-producers’ agenda helps inform and develop IoC practice, particularly in terms of activating and engaging students. How can students become producers of IoC materials, knowledges and practices? We will also look practices that engage students in cross-boundary knowledge production. What are some of the challenges of activating and sustaining student-led learning in transnational education contexts or international online spaces, for example?

In addition the event will also consider the emerging theme of decolonising the university. We feel that students at post-1992 universities are yet to fully engage the with movement but there has been significant interest growing within NTU and we are keen to harness the energy, the reflection and the excitement that this brings.
