Global Insights Workshop - Engaging All Students in Internationalisation
22 Mar 2019
This lunchtime seminar, led by Emerita Prof Elspeth Jones, one of the world's leading experts in international higher education and campus internationalisation, will focus on the student perspective in relation to internationalisation and how to engage students to be more globally-minded in their studies and beyond. Open to all academic & support staff, the seminar will provide guidance on how to enhance dialogue between students in the classroom and on campus, and how to promote international and intercultural experiences for all students within and beyond the curriculum.
UCD aspires to bring the best of the world to Ireland and the best of Ireland, including its distinct cultures, to the world. In hosting Emerita Prof Elspeth Jones, we are certainly doing the former, and with her guidance we look forward to helping you to be in a better position to do the latter.
The seminar takes place on Thursday April 4th at 13:00hrs. Book your place here.
