Latest Conference

Building on the great success of IIH2019, we are pleased to announce our second one-day conference, at the University of Kent, to share good practice in the fields of Internationalisation at Home and Internationalisation of the Curriculum.

Innovations in Internationalisations (IIH 2020)

The Power of Co-Creation

Plenary sessions, presentations and workshops at IIH2019 focused on research or tried-and-tested good practice in globally-focused Higher Education or educational support activities. At IIH2020 We are particularly interested in The Power of Co-Creation and the ways in which staff and students have collaborated to inform internationalisation at home and internationalisation of the curriculum initiatives. View the IIH2020 event page for more programme details and how to register.

COVID-19 RELATED UPDATE

The IIH2020 conference planning team have been monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the globe. After much consideration and discussion, we regret to announce that the IIH2020 conference on 24 April, in Canterbury has now been postponed. We have already received a broad range of speaker proposals and comments from colleagues, who were excited to attend the IIH2020 conference. We hope you’ll join us when the next opportunity arises. 

Postponing is a huge disappointment for everyone involved but we know that it is the best decision, given the circumstances. Please keep an eye on this website which we update when the new date is known. In the meantime, keep safe and we look forward to learning about your innovations which we know will only be more developed when we do have the ability to meet.

IIH 2019

On 5 April 2019, more than 60 colleagues from across the sector joined us for a one-day conference, at the University of Kent, to share good practice in the fields of internationalisation at home and internationalisation of the Curriculum. 

Innovations in Internationalisation (IIH2019)

At IIH2019 we welcomed speaker submissions from representatives from more than 18 different institutions in the UK and overseas.

Pleanary sessions, presentations and workshops at IIH2019 focused on research or tried-and-tested good practice in globally-focused Higher Education or educational support activities. We were particularly interested in:

  • Research and classroom practice which can be linked to meaningful outcomes in student experience for both home and international students
  • Ventures which seek to develop intercultural awareness between home and international students
  • Mechanisms for encouraging and supporting internationalisation in different academic disciplines
  • Examples of embedding internationalised learning outcomes
  • Internationalisation within formal and informal contexts
  • Internationalisation activities which harness technology for transnational communications
  • Strategies for engaging colleagues in internationalisation at home

Curriculum internationalisation is a topic of growing global academic importance, as universities expand and recruit staff and students from beyond national borders and seek to make relevant impact through teaching, innovation and engagement.
