Internationalisation of higher education

Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council and the Thailand Research Fund will be holding a workshop on the Internationalisation of Higher Education in Bangkok on 6-9 January 2016.  The workshop is being jointly coordinated by Newcastle University and Kasetsart University, and will have contributions from leading researchers—Professor Sue Robson, Professor Steve Walsh, Dr Tony Young, Associate Professor Dr Mangkorn Rodprapakorn, Dr Navaporn S. Snodin and Dr Parichart Phootirat. 

The workshop will address the challenge of promoting values-based, intercultural internationalisation by convening a multidisciplinary group of established and emerging researchers from the UK and Thailand to explore how the internationalisation of HE can become more inclusive, sustainable and academically and culturally beneficial. The workshop theme will centre on four interrelated areas of development:

(1) Internationalising the curriculum for qualitative learning outcomes;

(2) Enhancing the quality of international student and staff mobility experiences;

(3) Developing more transparent and sustainable transnational HE partnerships;

(4) Promoting ethical, equitable and socially responsible HE practices and research.
