Abstract

As tertiary institutions embrace broader conceptions of what it means to be "international", there emerges a clearer imperative to deploy strategic approaches that address cultural diversity in higher education. However, few concrete examples exist to inform effective curriculum (re)development and delivery. Of special importance in this context are the pedagogical practices that can facilitate the development of intercultural and international proficiencies in students and equip graduates with skills sufficient to operate in a global and increasingly complex world. This chapter presents the findings of a two-year project on "Internationalizing the Curriculum" at one of Australia's largest universities. One of the project's key outcomes presented here is a set of pedagogical principles structured around three interdependent categories, namely: (1) cognitive; (2) affective; and (3) operational. Their integration into practice was foundational in moving students along a transformative path towards intercultural competencies.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
