Given the increasing numbers of international students, many universities have explored ways of internationalising the curriculum to meet the changing needs and expectations of their students. This session is a taster of what that could look like in your own context.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
• gain knowledge of current practices in internationalising the curriculum in a UK context;
• examine their own practice and identify potential for change.
