Forming Globally Competent Graduates
(Course Language: Spanish)

The purpose of this course is to explain what is meant by forming Globally Competent students. Defining terms related to the concept will be a major focus. In addition, various approaches will be discussed on developing globally competent students including both formal and informal strategies. Institutional tactics will be explored suggesting academic ways to approach the concept as well as utilizing all of the other nonacademic resources of universities and colleges. Discussion will also cover the relationship of a globally competent student and global competitiveness and how such a student is better prepared for work in our interconnected global economy.

Integrating an International and Intercultural Dimension in the HEI Academic Realm
(Course Language: Spanish)
Facilitator: Hans de Wit, PhD

Internationalization in higher education is a rather new and broad concept. What do we mean with this concept, why are institutions doing this, and what are the intended outcomes of that process? These aspects will be discussed and a process of integrating the international, intercultural and global dimensions in teaching and learning will be presented. Participants will learn strategies and tools to work on moving from an activity approach towards a comprehensive internationalization policy and organization, combining mobility schemes with internationalization at home and in the curriculum, and strategic partnerships.
