Carroll, J., Beelan, J., Whitsed, C., Green, W. and Leask, B. (2011) What the..? You want me to do even more?! Engaging academic staff in internationalisation of the curriculum. In: Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) 2011, 11 - 14 October 2011, Adelaide, South Australia

Abstract

It is critical that we actively involve academic staff in internationalisation. They construct, manage and control the content and delivery of the curriculum in their discipline areas. The International Association of University’s 3rd Global Survey report concluded that ‘institutions need to focus far more on mobilising, training and providing support to faculty members and staff to build up internationalisation knowledge and readiness ’ (Egron-Polak & Hudson 2010, p. 78). In this session the presenters will share their experiences of engaging academic staff with internationalisation of the curriculum drawing on their experience in more than six countries and over 30 universities. The advantages and disadvantages of different models and ways of working will be discussed with an eye to the next 25 years
