The drive to internationalize higher education has seen the focus shift in recent years towards its defining element, the curriculum. As the point of connection between broader institutional strategies and the student experience, the curriculum plays a key role in the success or failure of the internationalization agenda. Yet despite much debate, the role and power of curriculum internationalization is often unappreciated. This has meant that critical questions, including what it means and how it can be achieved in different disciplines, have not been consistently or strategically addressed. This volume breaks new ground in connecting theory and practice in internationalizing the curriculum in different disciplinary and institutional contexts. An extensive literature review, case studies and action research projects provide valuable insights into the concept of internationalization of the curriculum. Best practice in curriculum design, teaching and learning in higher education are applied specifically to the process of internationalizing the curriculum. Examples from different disciplines and a range of practical resources and ideas are provided. Topics covered include: why internationalize the curriculum?; designing internationalized learning outcomes; using student diversity to internationalize the curriculum; blockers and enablers to internationalization of the curriculum; assessment in an internationalized curriculum; connecting internationalization of the curriculum with institutional goals and student learning. Internationalizing the Curriculum provides invaluable guidance to university managers, academic staff, professional development lecturers and support staff as well as students and scholars interested in advancing theory and practice in this important area.

Information about internationalizing undergraduate education is presented. Data gathered from the membership of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) provide a profile of the degree of internationalization of these institutions. Additionally, major means of internationalizing the curriculum and the institution are identified, and practical guidelines are summarized to assist those who wish to know where and how to start to internationalize their campus or how to strengthen and refine that process. Survey results provide information on the extent of internationalization of the institutions using a five category classification scheme, the distribution of variables (e.g., the existence of planned international programs, study abroad, and program relations with the less developed countries), the seeking of grants and success rate, ethnic studies, institutional location and size, institutional operating budget, and requirements for graduation, foreign languages, and teaching English as a second language. The major curricular options that might be considered are: the infusion of nonwestern material, comparative approaches, issue-oriented approaches, area and civilization studies, intercultural communication, international development studies, and international studies major or minor. Establishing international education exchanges and funding arrangements are addressed. A list of 13 guidelines for AASCU institutions, a bibliography, a sample questionnaire, and information on funding sources are included. (SW)

Internationalization is a looming policy issue in higher education?yet precisely what it can add to the student learning experience and what it means with regard to teaching and learning are far too infrequently discussed or written about. This volume explores different meanings and rationales underlying the notion of internationalization in higher education. Although internationalization efforts in higher education have become increasingly driven by economic considerations, finance is not an appropriate foundation for all initiatives, particularly those at the level of curriculum, where academic, social/cultural, ethical, political and even environmental rationales feature more strongly. The chapter authors provide a rich conceptual basis from which to appreciate concrete efforts directed at internationalizing curricula, and they describe nine cases of internationalization initiatives at the curricular level. The volume further suggests that consideration of internationalization in higher education must look both within specific programs and across programs. It cannot be separated from fundamental questions about the purposes of higher education and the roles of teachers, students, administrators, and the institution as a whole in fulfilling those purposes. This is the 118th volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

"Higher education is facing unprecedented change as today’s graduates need particular skills, awareness, and knowledge to successfully navigate a complex and interconnected world. Higher education institutions and practitioners are under pressure to be attentive to internationalization initiatives that support increasingly diverse student populations and foster the development of global citizenship competencies which include, “problem-defining and solving perspectives that cross disciplinary and cultural boundaries” (Hudzik, 2004, p. 1 as cited in Leask & Bridge, 2013). Internationalizing Higher Education: Critical Collaborations across the Curriculum is for current and future faculty, student affairs staff, and administrators from diverse disciplinary, institutional, and geographic contexts. This edited volume invites readers to investigate, better understand, and inform intercultural pedagogy that supports the development of mindful global citizenship. This edited volume features reflective practitioners exploring the dynamic and evolving nature of intercultural learning as well as the tensions and complexities. Contributors include institutional researchers, directors and key implementers of EU/Bologna process in Poland (one of the newest members and one that is facing unprecedented change in the diversity of its students), international partners in learning abroad programs, and scholars and instructors across a range of humanities, STEM, and social sciences."

Globalization and the resulting internationalization of universities is driving change in teaching, learning, and what it means to be educated. This book provides exemplars of how the Communication discipline and curriculum are responding to the demands of globalization and contributing to the internationalization of higher education. Communication as a discipline provides a strong theoretical and methodological framework for exploring the benefits, challenges and meanings of globalization. The goal of this book, therefore, is to facilitate internationalization of the communication discipline in an era of globalization. Section one discusses the theoretical perspectives of globalism, internationalization, and the current state of the Communication discipline and curriculum. Section two offers a comprehensive understanding of the role, ways, and impact of internationalizing teaching, learning, and research in diverse areas of study in Communication, including travel programs and initiatives to bring internationalization to the classroom. The pieces in this section will include research-based articles, case studies, analytical reviews that exam key questions about the field, and themed pieces for dialogue/debate on current and future teaching and learning issues related to internationalizing the Communication discipline/curriculum. Section three provides an extensive sampling of materials and resources for immediate use in internationalization in communication studies; sample syllabi, activities, examples, and readings will be included. In sum, our book is designed to enable communication curriculum and communication courses in other disciplines to be internationalized and to offer different approaches to enable faculty, students, and administrators to incorporate and experience an internationalized curriculum regardless of time and financial limitations. This book is notable as a professional development resource for individuals both inside and outside the communication discipline who wish to incorporate a global perspective into their research and classrooms.

Issues pertaining to internationalizing the undergraduate and professional school curriculum and campus are summarized by the president emeritus of Western Oregon State College, based on a 1983 national workshop attended by college administrators and staff of international programs. Efforts by professional schools to provide international studies and campus activities were addressed, as were the roles of student and faculty exchanges. Attention was also focused on the following concerns: the ways that undergraduate and professional schools can better serve international students, approaches to effectively develop international faculty exchanges, and fund- raising. Challenges that this mission poses for schools that are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities are addressed, including the development of policies for international education and internationalizing the academic program. Appendices include a workshop schedule and a list of the names and addresses of contact persons (panelists, moderators, federal resource persons) for each of the following sessions: internationalizing the undergraduate curriculum, internationalizing the professional school, integrating educational exchange with the institutional mission, and mobilizing the needed resources.

This lecture describes the processes and outcomes of a two-year Fellowship project focussed on exploring the meaning of internationalisation of the curriculum in different disciplinary and institutional contexts in Australia. The project engaged faculty in communities of practice focussed on a critical approach to internationalisation of the curriculum. Faculty were supported to explore the meaning of internationalisation of the curriculum in their discipline area and their program. The programs that universities teach often have a national flavour. However, the disciplines are global communities of practice and students are increasingly mobile across national borders. The findings of the Fellowship therefore have significance beyond Australia. This lecture will explore some of the key findings of the fellowship. In particular, those related to some of the conceptual and practical issues facing professional and academic staff seeking to internationalise the curriculum in any part of the world.

This book assembles state-of-the-art thinking on the internationalization of the curriculum of training centers in I/O and Work Psychology. The experts contributing chapters share their thoughts on the knowledge and skills that students must master in the 21st century, as well as their research on how we can develop students to be globally perceptive, culturally competent working professionals. Chapters cover a full range of topics such as: the scope of subject matter and content, learning objectives and outcomes, global competencies, co-curricular activities, experiential learning and the tacit curriculum, while curriculum development must stem from the philosophy of each institution, these philosophies may diverge in focus (e.g. science versus practice) and outcomes (e.g. jobs versus mastery). Therefore, the goal of the book is not to prescribe a particular curriculum, but rather to provide insight on possible curriculum elements that may be customized for use by training institutions.

This book seeks to understand how to internationalize curriculum without imperializing or imposing the old, colonial, and so-called first-world conceptualizations of education, teaching, and learning. The collection draws on the groundbreaking work of Dwayne Huebner in order to invite scholars into conversation with histories of curriculum studies and to posit them within it, opening up new spaces to work in and through curricular issues. This book will appeal to scholars, teachers, and students looking to reconceptualize international curriculum development and theory.

This paper is based on two premises. First, that internationalising the curriculum is the most important strategy institutions can use to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need in a globalised world. Second, that because the disciplines are the intellectual homes for faculty, the disciplinary associations can and should lead the way in promoting internationalisation. The paper suggests global learning outcomes as a way to advance internationalisation of the disciplines.
