Internationalising programmes in higher education, an educational development perspective, edited by Jeanine Gregersen-Hermans and Karen M. Lauridsen

Summary
"This book addresses challenges that higher education institutions face when bridging the gap between internationalisation as a key university strategy and their delivery of interculturally competent and responsible graduates. Combining international case studies and research outcomes, it provides an in-depth understanding of the role educational developers can play in the internationalisation of higher education and in the provision of an internationalised learning experience for all students. The book situates international education in global and local contexts and contributes to the design and delivery of internationalised curricula in very concrete terms. In doing so, it suggests how academic staff may enhance the quality of their programmes by leveraging the opportunities of international classrooms where students have diverse academic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. The content of the book is therefore also foundational for continuing professional development (CPD) programmes that enhance staff competences for designing and teaching inclusive internationalised programmes and include topics such as: An international competence profile for educational developers, Intercultural competence as a graduate attribute, Internationalised curriculum design and delivery, Intercultural group dynamics, The role of languages in internationalised higher education classrooms, Reflective processes for teaching and learning in the international classroom. This book is essential reading and a go-to resource for any academic looking to internationalise their education programmes. It will also be of interest to those directly involved in curriculum development, learning, and teaching as well as those who have more strategic responsibilities within and beyond HEIs, or who are involved in higher education research"--, Provided by publisher
