Internationalisation at home refers to the purposeful integration of international and intercultural dimensions into the curriculum for all students within domestic learning environments.

To practice internationalisation at home, education institutions can:

  • integrate global perspectives in their study programmes
  • stimulate the development of international and intercultural perspectives
  • support cultural diversity in classrooms for inclusive learning and teaching
  • encourage virtual mobility through collaboration with partner institutions

The webinar will take place on Thursday, 14 December, 17.00 - 18.00 CET.

What is HEInnovate

HEInnovate is a self-reflection tool for higher education institutions (HEIs) who wish to explore their innovative potential. It identifies areas of strength and weakness, opens up discussion on the entrepreneurial/innovative nature of HEIs and allows them to compare and contrast evolution over time. It guides them through a process of identification, prioritisation and action planning based on 8 key dimensions. The tool is open to all HEIs, it is free and can be used for individual or group self-assessments.
