Navigating Other Cultures: Responses from an Australian University to the Challenge of "Internationalising the Student Learning Experience"
Stone, Nick
Journal of Studies in International Education, v10 n4 p311-318 2006
This collection of articles offers some practical responses to what is broadly termed internationalisation in higher education. They relate to work done at a research-intensive university in southeastern Australia, with a specific focus on the student learning experience. Various local interpretations of internationalisation are exemplified and explored in some detail and from different angles. Included are descriptions and findings from innovative projects that arose from the "Navigating Other Cultures" initiative that was funded by the Council for University Teaching and Staff Development (CUTSD) within the Australian Commonwealth Department of Education Training and Youth Affairs. It also includes other initiatives that have arisen more organically and that address both practical and conceptual issues including capitalising on transcultural dynamics in tertiary teaching, analysing the discourses of university internationalisation, and clarifying some elements of intercultural competence. Two articles that were originally part of this collection have been published elsewhere. They focused on internationalising an accounting curriculum (Cobbin & Lee, 2002) and integrating academic and work-based wisdom in international fieldwork (Webber, 2005). (Contains 2 tables.)
