Talking cultures - enhancing intercultural awareness in and beyond the University context
Enhancement Week

Presented by Charlene Earl, International Pathways Manager, CEWL

The University of Kent has welcomed international students from around the world for over 50 years. The changing nature of the student body, aligned with the shifting global contact in which higher education is embedded, means UK Higher Education Institutions (HEI) must closely keep in touch with the needs of international students and the developing requirements of educational support available to students in any international HE environment. Talking Cultures refers to a series of training and consultancy activities devised by the Centre for English and World Languages (CEWL). Our work aims to foster and enhance intercultural awareness both within and beyond the University context. Talking Cultures involves the development of intercultural awareness in Higher Education teaching and learning. Our provision also includes specifically focused CPD for professionals working or studying in international environments ranging from academics in specific fields to trainee medical practitioners.

This LTN session is designed to encourage discussion based around the obstacles faced in a diverse international HEI environment and how we can actively encourage engagement between cultures in order to share knowledge and further facilitate collaboration both in and out of the classroom.
