The C-Inter network is open to researchers who work theoretically and empirically with internationalisation processes in higher education, in organisations and in society. The network aims to 1) produce new knowledge on internationalisation, documenting and evaluating existing policies and practices; and 2) contribute to the development of ‘best practice’ by engaging in dialogue with internal and external actors involved in and affected by internationalisation processes. The group understands internationalisation broadly, welcoming researchers from areas such as linguistics, cultural studies, intercultural communication, education, organisation studies – and indeed any discipline with an interest in pursuing research in the area of internationalisation.
Current members’ interests include:
- International and comparative education
- Intercultural communication and learning
- Interconnections and cosmopolitanism
- Discourses of ‘interculturality’ and ‘internationalisation’
- Global Citizenship education
- Global and international relations
- Language politics and practice in higher education
- Higher education – policies and practices
- PBL and internationalisation
- Interdisciplinary and intercultural PBL
PBL and multicultural teamwork
To support AAU students and supervisors, the C-Inter group has developed learning materials dedicated to multicultural teamwork. Our resource bank consists of two types of resources: 1) an introduction to PBL and multicultural teamwork, which foregrounds key issues related to this work organisation, and 2) learning ‘tools’ that enable groups to explore a particular theme, with a view to strengthening mutual understanding and collaboration. You can start with any of the texts, although we encourage you to read the ‘Introduction’ at some point to gain a fuller understanding of the processes involved in multicultural teamwork.
