Internationalising the curriculum: Approaches to learning teaching and assessment

This case study outlines and initiative undertaken at York St John University as part of the HEA's Internationalisation Change Programme.

Against the background of the University’s internationalisation strategy the relatively little evidence of intercultural competence development and the (piecemeal) focus on content-focused approaches to internationalising the curriculum the initiative set out to explore a way of meeting some of the expectations announced in the policy document.

The intention was to see whether or how aside from working with international module content students might gain from each other’s indigenous knowledge develop intercultural communication skills and learn to understand respect and critique each other’s cultural and knowledge bases.
