Posted: 15 January, 2020

Waterford Institute of Technology will host a seminar on “Internationalisation For All Through ‘Internationalisation at Home”  on Monday, 17 February 2020 from 10:00 – 13:00 in Room A02, Cork Road Campus, Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).

The seminar is funded by the National Forum for Teaching and Learning and will be led by Professor Catherine Montgomery, University of Durham and Dr. Don O’Neill, WIT.

While the number of students engaged in physical learning mobility continues to grow, the reality is the majority of undergraduate students do not have an international mobility experience as part of their studies.  The seminar organisers explain “in a time when we are being increasingly asked to consider our carbon footprint, this seminar, referring to real world examples from universities worldwide will examine ways of making internationalisation accessible to all students as an integrated part of their curriculum”.

Learning outcomes targeted for the seminar:

  1. Appraise how ‘internationalisation at home’ can support student success in and through their studies
  2. Evaluate current approaches to ‘internationalisation at home’ used globally
  3. Identify new approaches to ‘internationalisation at home’ suitable to the Irish Higher Education context
  4. Plan for the integration of selected approaches to curriculum design.

There is no fee for the seminar and bookings can be made via the following link.

Light refreshments will be served.
