Creating an Institutional Internationalisation Strategy
A definition that focuses on internationalisation of the university has been around for quite some time and consists of adding a global, international, or intercultural dimension to the functions of post-secondary education. What actually happens at universities encompasses a great range of activities that may or may not be coordinated, or even act in a synergistic way. Where does one start to create a university wide-strategy that is impactful and delivers on what it promises. What is needed in the way of organisational structures, what choices are there, and how do they influence the university’s response to globalisation? In this course participants gain the ability to create a university strategy for internationalisation set in the context of their particular environment. This includes the ability to monitor progress towards a successful institutional internationalisation strategy. Topics covered will include rationales for internationalisation, the link between rationales and activities, leadership, organisation, resources, and measurement and evaluation of the process and outcomes.
These days many universities promise to deliver graduates who are global citizens. Graduates who can manifest themselves in an appropriate and positive way, regardless of the cultural context. The question is whether these statements are just laudable aims or whether they have actually been delivered upon? Have graduates achieved the necessary learning outcomes to be able to do and know what is required to possess these characteristics? Indeed, most institutions profess to work in a student-centred way, but oftentimes a thorough consideration of the teaching and learning environment shows that there is much more that can be gained to make learning truly student-centred. The attributes that graduates should possess upon leaving university, apart from disciplinary knowledge, include those related to internationalisation as a part of 21st century skills. This course will look at critical elements of student-centred teaching and learning and show how good practice will not only demonstrate that students will achieve these outcomes, but offer a way to embed learning outcomes related to internationalisation as a normal part of redefining the curriculum. Participants of this course will be able to apply principles of student-centred learning in their own institutions to achieve the desired learning outcomes of internationalisation.
