Webinar recording: The impact of internationalisation on the UCA curriculum

  • Dr. Tomasz John (EAP Coordinator and researcher in the internationalisation of HE)
  • John Sutter (Learning Enhancement Manager)
  • Dr. Tony Reeves (Subject Leader, Creative Education)

UCA’s increased focus on internationalisation presents implications for the design and delivery of our courses. Ensuring the success of international students will require inclusive and intercultural approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, and a clear awareness of the linguistic requirements of increasingly international cohorts.

In this webinar, UCA’s Dr. Tomasz John and John Sutter outline some key issues and strategies to help course teams prepare for an increasingly international student body. Hosted by Dr. Tony Reeves, this webinar will be of interest to anyone involved in designing curricula, preparing teaching sessions or writing documentation for international students.

      No problem at all Tomasz, the webinar certainly provided a great opportunity to get some feedback from the UCA community. I’m pleased that we’ve managed to engage more people in dialogue around internationalisation as it presents so many opportunities for UCA to become a globally recognised creative university. I look forward to hearing how everything goes from the course leaders’ away day…
