The project group 'Global Classroom' has developed a concept to support internationalisation at home. We want to help programme directors and teachers to support interactions with students from foreign universities as an integrated part of the education.
Today university students, teachers, researchers and administrative staff expect and are expected to participate in international and intercultural professional contexts. Present internationalisation activities at Lnu involve only a minority of university staff and students since the focus has so far been on physical mobility. However, digital media enable all to be involved in international professional networks and collaboration, both as a complement to physical mobility and when physical mobility is simply not practical or feasible. This type of internationalisation is known as virtual mobility (VM), a concept already widely spread within global higher education.
The primary aim of the project is to create a framework and organisation to establish international networking and collaboration as a key element in all courses at undergraduate and masters level at Lnu.
The project will run from 2015 to 2017. The project can be followed at this webpage as well as in the Staff group Global Classroom where we will give continuous reports and announce related sub-projects.
