Internationalisation Of The Curriculum In Context
Internationalisation in higher education is important in both the local and the global contexts within which universities operate and internationalisation of the curriculum is a critical component of any university’s internationalisation strategy.In different places and at different times internationalisation of the curriculum has been linked with a variety of activities including outbound mobility in the form of study abroad and exchange, the preparation of all graduates to live and work in a global society, teaching international students, the development of intercultural skills in home students and the adaptation of curricula for transnational delivery. While much has been written about internationalisation of the curriculum in general terms, the notion of it working across disciplines is poorly understood and has been a low priority in the past.
Internationalisation Of The Curriculum In Context explores disciplinary approaches to and interpretations of internationalisation of the curriculum. Based on an extensive literature review and case studies from a range of national, institutional and disciplinary contexts, this book explores new ground and provides insights into internationalisation of the curriculum in action in the 21st century world. It proposes a framework for internationalisation of the curriculum that situates it within multiple contexts and facilitates an exploration of its many dimensions. It identifies the blockers and enablers to internationalisation of the curriculum within different contexts and provides invaluable guidance to university managers, academic staff, professional development lecturers and support workers as well as students and scholars interested in advancing theory and practice in this important area.
