Internationalization of the Curriculum: Moving ahead together
Internationalization of the curriculum (IoC) is a transformative process of higher education that begins, first and foremost, with a commitment. In this event, four universities in Switzerland (BFH, HES-SO, SUPSI, ZHAW) report on their joint commitment to advance IoC in Swiss higher education in a systematic and impactful way. Together with invited guest speakers from different parts of the world, participants will reflect on, and exchange experiences about, the potential and challenges involved in making internationalization a formal component of higher education curricula. This includes a conversation about how we can move on from intention to action and how we can get financial support for innovative initiatives. Two keynote speeches and parallel interactive sessions for exchange will headline the event. The event is open to all stakeholders and colleagues interested in the topic and will allow time for interaction and networking.
