Internationalising the Curriculum Conference (IoC)
Friday 14th July 2017, 9am-4pm
Save the date - organised by the Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) and NTU Global, the second Internationalising the Curriculum Conference will take place on Friday 14 July 2017. Registration to attend the event will open in March.
We are now inviting papers and posters that explore this challenge on a number of fronts.
First, we encourage contributions that explore how to inspire students to seek-out, recognise and value multiple and competing perspectives, particularly in disciplines such as those in the pure sciences. How do we validate students’ diverse backgrounds and experiences and harness them as learning resources from which all students can benefit? How do we balance engagement with different viewpoints against the demands of assessment or the need to develop decision-making skills and active citizens?
Second, we welcome papers that take as their starting point different country contexts to explore how our knowledge and understanding of internationalising the curriculum itself might be diversified. This may involve consideration of particular educational contexts, comparative reflection on teaching and learning in different countries, or exploration of how difference in educational standards and norms impacts on collaborative initiatives, staff exchange and other forms of international educational engagement.
Further information and an application form can be requested by email.
