Diversity, Inclusion and Internationalisation of the Curriculum at Home

Elspeth Jones

Internationalisation of the curriculum and internationalisation at home are sometimes thought of as different concepts. This course will begin by discussing the relationships between the two and go on to explore how focusing on internationalisation can help develop a more inclusive teaching and learning approach for all students from diverse backgrounds, whether ‘home’ or ‘international’.  It will consider how academics can introduce alternative and/or global perspectives within the curriculum and tools for supporting them in this endeavour, as well as the kind of intercultural skills and attitudes which may be developed through a curriculum which adopts this approach.

Leading and Engaging Faculty and Staff in the Internationalisation of Higher Education

Elspeth Jones

Today’s university must reach across national boundaries and go beyond traditional approaches to the dissemination of knowledge and ideas. Globalisation, intensifying competition in international education, changing global student flows, institutional rankings and stakeholder demand are just some of the compelling drivers for international engagement. An integrated or comprehensive approach to internationalisation means that the university must develop the culture, attitudes and practices that enable international and cross-cultural perspectives to permeate all aspects of its work. This programme will consider what this means at an institutional level. It will offer a number of critical success factors and propose some indicators of successful achievement. A model for evaluating progress will be considered, along with some of the leadership and staff development issues that arise.
