Rethinking internationalisation of the home curriculum
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.
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
