Internationalisation Webinar Series



Webinar is now online at: Webinar 2015

The internationalisation seminar/webinar series has been running since 2007 as part of an initiative organised by Dr Joanna Al-Youssef, University of Nottingham. It is an open event during which participants and speakers address a particular aspect related to the internationalisation of higher education.

The theme of this year’s webinar, taking place on Wednesday 30th September, is ‘Internationalisation and change’. This free event is supported by the British Educational Research Association’s (BERA) Special Interest Group ‘Comparative and International Education’ convened by Dr Nicola Savvides (Kings College London) and Dr Pinky Jain (University of Worcester).

Topics for presentations and discussion this year are:

  • Internationalisation of the Curriculum: a ‘Wicked’ Problem? (Dr Sheila Trahar, Reader in International Higher Education, University of Bristol)
  • Internationalisation and Development – Has the internationalisation of UK HE been driven primarily to sustain UK HE as a globally marketable product? Or have universities adopted intentional approaches that seek to address transnational inequality and justice? (Elizabeth Rider-Grant, Senior Lecturer Work-Based & Placement Learning, Buckinghamshire New University)
  • Internationalisation, where are you?: Reflections on experiences and observations regarding the progression of views and practice on internationalisation in the UK University sector (Dr Margarida Dolan, Advisor to the Economics Network)
  • Moving towards transformative Intercultural learning: understanding the home student experience of Internationalisation (Dr Caroline Burns, Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes, University of Northumbria)

The discussion will begin at 14:00 (UT) on Wednesday 30th September 2015 and will use google plus (hangouts) as the platform.
