What is this session about?

The international classroom has become a key part of strategy for many higher education institutions. Yet, many institutions struggle to implement the international classroom in their programmes.

This workshop approaches the implementation of the international classroom as a change process. The implementation requires changes in curriculum design, pedagogy, and in individual and collective beliefs.

In a short introduction we will present principles and perspectives of change. We will illustrate these with examples of study programmes in different disciplines and institutions.

In smaller groups at round tables, you will be able to share your own experiences, best practices and what not to do. You can also discuss how to apply these perspectives of change to your own context.

In a plenary end discussion, all groups will share their good practices, issues and ideas.

How will this session help you?

  • You will learn to approach the international classroom as a change process.
  • You will learn the implications of this approach for your work.
  • You will share good practices and strategies with other participants.
  • You will develop ideas on how to apply these lessons in the context of your institution.
