Inclusive Practices In Education Abroad: Why, Who, And How?

Instructor: Dr. Nick Gozik

Dates: June 14 - June 25, 2021

Format: Online Synchronous Sessions, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12:00 - 1:15pm

Designed for practitioners and students alike, this hybrid course explores how approaches to inclusive excellence can be applied throughout the education abroad process to enhance all students’ learning. Doing so moves us away from looking primarily at compositional diversity to considering inclusion for quality and excellence. We begin by exploring the rationales for why equity, diversity, and inclusion are critical in mobility schemes; who we ultimately serve; and how we go about affecting sustainable change.

Internationalizing the Curriculum For All Students

Instructor: Dr. Betty Leask

Dates: June 28 - July 3, 2021

Format: Online Asynchronous

It is timely, as we enter a new decade in  a world ravaged by a pandemic, to think about how to apply what we know about internationalization of the curriculum, teaching and learning at home - in class and on campus - in different disciplinary and institutional contexts. Discussions and presentations in this course will provoke critical reflection on the past and prompt forward thinking, inviting all participants to consider their role in imagining and creating internationalization of the curriculum for the future.
