Engaging Faculty in Internationalization of the Curriculum

Betty Leask 

An internationalized curriculum is an essential element of Comprehensive Internationalization. However it is widely recognized that engaging faculty in the process of internationalizing the curriculum is often difficult. In this course we will explore approaches that have been used to engage faculty working in different disciplinary and institutional contexts in internationalizing the curriculum. We will consider questions such as: ‘What is the role of faculty in internationalizing the curriculum?’; ‘How can faculty be motivated, prepared and supported to engage in the process of internationalization of the curriculum?’; and ‘What motivates and inspires them as well as what ‘turns them off’ this agenda?’  Practical examples, models and case studies from different institutions and courses will be used to assist participants to develop strategies to engage faculty in their institution in internationalizing the curriculum. 


Characteristics of a course

Duration of a course: Training takes place over  a two-week period.
Capacity of a course: Up to 20 participants from ONE institution.
Modality: Online through the USMEXFUSION Academy educational platform

The course structure:

1. Training starts with a 1st LIVE presentation with Q&A (1.5 to 2 hours). After the live session, the expert will share with participants two readings (minimum). 

2. Three days after the live session, based on the content and direction of the first live discussion, the expert would shape the questions he/she would pose in three forums. He/She would then give about a week for participants to add to forums from stimulating discussions, and replying when necessary. 

3. Once forums close, a 2nd LIVE presentation would be scheduled so that the expert addresses main points from the forums and an open discussion will follow. This 2nd LIVE discussion takes place towards the end of the second week of training.
