Internationalizing the Curriculum: From Theory to Practice

Wednesday, November 13
3:45 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Frederick

Internationalizing the curriculum, co-curriculum, and learning outcomes involves many stakeholder groups and, therefore, the development and implementation of substantive internationalization of the curriculum, co-curriculum, and learning outcomes can become a complex, multi-layered process. An institution’s curriculum is the bedrock of global learning which also makes it a crucial piece of the internationalization puzzle. In this session, we will share curriculum internationalization resources provided by the ACE Internationalization Lab to participant institutions and lessons learned from a currently participating institution. Specific internationalization interventions and their progress will also be shared.
