Rethinking internationalisation of the home curriculum @ Microsoft Teams

Rethinking internationalisation of the home curriculum

Description

During the current COVID-19 crisis, people often remark that is time to focus on internationalization at home because students cannot go abroad. However, internationalization at home it is not an alternative to mobility. Rather, it forms the basis for internationalization for all students. When student mobility will resume it will be, like before, for a small minority of (privileged) students. The great majority of students will continue to depend on the home curriculum for global, international and intercultural perspectives. So, while mobility of the majority of students has not changed as a consequence of COVID-19, this is a good time to rethink the internationalization of our curricula.

During this course we will work hands on, starting with the vision on internationalization of each programme of studies, rethinking that if required. We will then engage with the instruments that shape internationalization of the curriculum, including virtual exchange and Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL). We will practice articulating learning outcomes of programmes of study and of modules that form the curriculum.

Sessions will consist of input, discussions in teams and plenary discussion. Between the sessions, participants will work on assignments for their own study programme. They will upload these and receive feedback. Half way between the formal sessions, there will be informal sessions for discussion and questions.

Objectives
Main objectives of the course:

  • The participants have working knowledge of internationalization of the home curriculum, its rationales, aims and its potential
  • The participants are able to articulate international and intercultural aspects of the curriculum by internationalizing learning outcomes and assessment


Venue
Online, Microsoft Teams

Oct 21 @ 15:30 – Nov 18 @ 17:00
New Erasmus 2021-2027 @ Microsoft Teams

NEW ERASMUS 2021-2027

 

Theme of the course
During their professional education and postgraduate studies and their working life, many health care professionals (but also other professionals) nowadays plan some time abroad to broaden their personal and professional expertise. Others plan multi-centered cooperation/research activities, which include the home university as well as selected partners. International coordinators are the ones to support these activities and should therefore be up-to-date and familiar with the Erasmus+ to facilitate all of the before-mentioned activities,

Within the European Union, the Erasmus+ project was established to increase student and staff exchanges. The costs of these activities are EU funded and can be reimbursed to participants, if they apply for it.

Eventually different persons shy away from applying because of bureaucratic demands or other shortcomings, such as language proficiencies. The EU encourages all applicants, and especially those with a not so well-financed background or other social hindrances to apply for funding.

Health care professionals can benefit in learning new and different points of view related to one´s own study topic. Coming back, they will be able to proffer new insights and also in the long-term, society can benefit from an intereuropean/worldwide exchange, which is one of the goals of Erasmus.

They will profit in building/deepening personal capabilities (e.g. social, language, research, cooperation) and professional expertise and how to represent one’s own profession. They will also broaden their inter-cultural competencies and become global citizens.

 

Main objectives of the webinar and consultancies:

  • To enhance the familiarity with prerequisites to plan Erasmus funded activities.
  • To learn about different steps to be undertaken in reasonable time slots with home university and partner university for student/staff exchange or shared research/cooperation.
  • To help international coordinators in doing the specific task of facilitating staff/student exchange
  • To be given tips on how to write a successful proposal for application meeting the pre-fixed deadlines.
  • To enhance familiarity with templates/documents demanded by the European Commission and the participating agencies NAs and the EACEA.
  • To learn about personal skills to be possibly improved by using Erasmus and how these will be possibly implemented into a.o. health care professions and society, as well as in other professions, linked to the COHEHRE wide range of members and partners.

COHEHRE Student Conference: Diversity and Social Inclusion (DiSI) @ Rotterdam, The Netherlands
May 9 @ 00:00 – May 13 @ 00:00
COHEHRE Student Conference: Diversity and Social Inclusion (DiSI) @ Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Diversity and Social Inclusion (DiSI) is a program of study aimed at enhancing awareness of different kinds of social inequalities rooted in many different ways of diversity in our contemporary societies, including those that especially occur in a super-diverse environment.

It will support the development of core competences in future educators, health care professionals and social workers with the help of an already piloted interdisciplinary model (ICIC) based on blended learning approach.
This model could improve the sensibility to differences in cultural, socio-economic and health status, and the unequal distribution of social resources.

The organization of the course consists of two modules. The expected outcomes of a preparatory assignment (module 1) based on distance learning will result in a 5-day intensive program (module 2) with activities taking place in a multi-professional and multicultural context in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The student conference will be hosted by Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.

More info will follow soon.
