Internationalisation Research Focus Groups for Students and Staff-First in a series

Date(s) Friday 15 February 2008
Venue De Montfort University, Leicester
Organised by ESCalate / BMAF

The HigherEducationAcademy and HEA Subject Centre’s Internationalisation Project - led by ESCalate and LLAS

The main aim of this project is to explore perceptions and practice in internationalising the curriculum from a discipline, practitioner and student perspective.

During the day researchers will engage with staff and student focus groups in order to identify ways in which an internationalised curriculum can have an impact on the learning and teaching experience of UK and international students and staff. The groups will all be video and audio taped in order for input to be captured for research purposes.

Each focus group will be interdisciplinary and open to all levels of students, undergraduate through postgraduate, and, as stated above, both home and international.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
