Work with a partner to write down a response
If we achieve all we want in relation to this project:
All types of higher education, study programs, or sets of courses of study, or educational services (including distance education) in which the learners are located in a different country from the one where the awarding institution is based
the preparation of students to be internationally knowledgeable and inter-culturally competent, and; to address, through scholarship, the increasingly interdependent nature of the world (environmentally, culturally, economically and socially)
Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (1995)
the incorporation of an international and intercultural dimension into the content of the curriculum as well as the teaching and learning processes and support services of a program of study
(Leask 2009, p. 209)
We’ve got to try and amend or modify our education system. Or more important, the mindset. Even though you don’t want to question your teacher, you have a question mark against what he has pronounced as inalienable truth and then challenge it quietly and maybe prove him wrong

Professional development needs
building transnational relationships & engagement;
cross-cultural relations, intercultural competence & cultural issues;
internationalization of the curricula;
peer observation of teaching & learning practices;
assessment design, practice & moderation;
embedding English language proficiency and academic literacies in subjects;
quality assurance practices;
inclusive organising and educative practices
We need to go over there, they need to come here. We need to use video-conferences rather than doing everything via email. I’m a great believer in personal relationships, if you know the person it is easier to communicate. Email can be a very harsh form of communication and can lead to misunderstanding.
To enhance dialogic interaction and connectedness
collaboratively designed and negotiated;
context sensitive and specific,
practice-based and involve teams engaging and learning together in their daily work contexts.
