Internationalisation at Home: making it work for you


11 April 2019
9.00-16.30
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Via Carducci 28/30, Milan


This one-day workshop will offer opportunities for those new to internationalisation at home to learn more about it from the perspective of academic or administrative staff, while suggesting ideas and activities for others already familiar with the concept. The focus will be on practical ideas for implementation and developing an understanding how everyone has a role to play in its delivery. The workshop will include plenty of interactive elements and will be of interest to academics in any discipline, including those using English as a medium of instruction, faculty or university level administrative staff, programme designers and developers, as well as policy advisers and curriculum leaders.
