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

We would like to thank all the conference delegates and participants for making IIH2019 such a great success. If you would like to join our mailing list for IIH2020, please email: iih-conference@kent.ac.uk


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.
