Components of Internationalization in Higher Education by Mind Map: Components of Internationalization in Higher Education

1. Curriculum

1.1. Encourage students to find examples of content or applications of theory in different parts of the world / in different times in history

1.2. Allow for multiple modes of expression of learning by using multiple modes of teaching (i.e, not entirely text-based or assessment-based); offer choices in learning activities

1.3. Expand compulsory General Education offerings to include more non-western themes (beyond traditional language acquisition classes)

2. Policies and Procedures

2.1. Create multiple ways and modes of learning and working for flexible hours and different schedules / lifestyles (i.e., not only one holiday break for judeo-christian holidays)

2.2. Reduce/Eliminate policies related to outward, visible individual self-expression (e.g., not allowing profile photos in LMS / Email programs, imposing dress codes)

2.3. Situate International Centre or Department / Supports for International Students in a central / main area of campus for increased access to all students and faculty

2.4. Encourage Student Peers to work with new students, building their relationships and networks

3. Values of Staff and Faculty

3.1. Offer staff and faculty work abroad or work exchange opportunities (for short periods or longer sabbaticals)

3.2. Encourage internal staff or faculty exchanges between other departments and international department (e.g., staff at the Registrar's Office shadows International Student Advisors, then vice-versa)

3.3. Offer in-house or external PD for staff and faculty (e.g., this online course!)
