Major European Project Meeting 6-8 November 2013 in Colchester

The IntlUni Erasmus Academic Network holds its third partner meeting on 6-8 November 2013 at the University of Essex in Colchester.

2013.11.01 | Mette Kastberg Lillemose

The Network’s project addresses the challenges of the Multilingual and Multicultural Learning Space (MMLS), that is, the international classrooms where lecturers and students have different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The ultimate aim of the project is to identify the quality criteria that should characterise teaching and learning in the MMLS, and to develop recommendations for how Higher Education Institutions may implement and ensure the sustainability of quality teaching and learning in the MMLS.

The meeting marks the end of the first year of the project in which these challenges have been identified. The next steps for action will be to identify examples of successful practice and develop quality criteria for teaching and learning in the MMLS.

The IntlUni Erasmus Academic Network comprises 38 Higher Education Institutions in 27 countries, which gives the Network a Europe-wide scope and makes it possible to draw conclusions on the current situation regarding the internationalisation of higher education in Europe and make recommendations for future initiatives.

IntlUni partner representatives cover a wide range of functions within the institutions they represent – language and content lecturers and researchers, directors of international centres, directors of language centres, educational developers, etc. This heterogeneity allows the project to cover many aspects related to the internationalisation of higher education.

The IntlUni Academic Network runs its three-year project (2012-15) with € 600,000+ financial support from the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.
