Proposal Title

IntlUni: The Challenges of the Multilingual and Multicultural Learning Space in the International University

Proposal Abstract

The past decade has witnessed an unprecedented increase in the internationalisation of higher education. This means that more people in higher education than ever before are teaching and learning through the medium of a language other than their own first languages. What are the implication of this for lecturers and students? And what are the implications for this for the quality of European higher education programmes? Taking it for granted that the internationalisation of higher education adds value � or has the potential to add value � to the programmes offered and the learning outcomes achieved by students, the overarching aim of IntlUni is to identify the quality criteria that characterize or should characterize teaching and learning in the multilingual and multicultural learning space, and to develop recommendations for how higher education institutions may implement and ensure the sustainability of quality teaching and learning in this space.
