Internationalisation: principles of good practice
Five principles of good practice for internationalisation of the curriculum were identified and form the basis of this toolkit.

* Internationalisation: diagnostic (153.9kb)
The diagnostic tool uses a simple traffic light system to highlight features of your practice and/or curriculum.

Internationalisation: features and consequences
The features and consequences show how each feature of a principle will impact upon the curriculum and student experience.

Internationalisation: quick ideas
Here are some examples of good practice in internationalisation

EVS slides for checking understanding (215.4kb)
TunringPoint slides have been developed to enable staff to check if students are understanding them within lectures.

HEA draft strategic framework: Internationalising Higher Education (270.5kb)
The HEA has opened a consultation on its draft strategic framework 'Internationalising higher education: framework for action'.

The framework has been designed to address the need for national guidance in the UK and produce a document that is as appropriate and helpful for the sector as possible. The HEA invites feedback on all aspects of the framework including the aspirations that underpin it, its content and the language used.

Contributions to the consultation are welcomed from anyone with an interest or involvement in the process of internationalising higher education. They can be made until the 7th May.

Attached is the consultation document, that gives background information on the rationale for the framework. The final version of the framework will be launched at the HEA’s Annual Conference in July.

The link to the survey has been posted separately.

Dr Karen Smith from UH's School of Education has developed a Transnational Education (TNE)Toolkit for the HEA. The toolkit provides excellent guidance, prompt questions and suggestions to help Universities and individuals develop their TNE practice.

The toolkit focuses on a number of key areas including: quality assurance and enhancement; the logistics of TNE; learning, teaching, and assessment; and relationship building.
