IntlUni Newsletter # 6

Welcome to the sixth IntlUni newsletter

Dear Subscriber,

We are once again very pleased to circulate our IntlUni newsletter and we hope you will find this an informative and inspiring read about the progress made in IntlUni over the last six months.

The ultimate aim of the project is to identify the quality criteria that should characterise teaching and learning in the Multilingual and Multicultural Learning Space (MMLS), and to develop recommendations for how Higher Education Institutions may implement and ensure the sustainability of quality teaching and learning in the MMLS.

All-partner meeting in Ljubljana, 20-22 May

The beautiful city of Ljubljana, Slovenia, played host to the penultimate all-partner meeting for IntlUni on 20-22 May, 2015. The meeting united most of the 38-partner strong network to discuss and refine the culminating document of the project: the IntlUni Recommendations.

This document will bring together 3 years of meetings, discussions and thinking about how we can understand and identify the quality criteria which characterise the multilingual, multicultural learning space, and also how we can ensure the sustainability of quality in this space. The diversity of the IntlUni network has been key factor in influencing the development of project work, and the input of all partners would be essential in shaping and finalising the IntlUni Recommendations.

Final Conference: Towards mastering the challenges of the international classroom

The IntlUni Final Conference of the IntlUni Erasmus Academic Network will be held at the Parlement bruxellois in Brussels on 24 September 2015.

The IntlUni Erasmus Academic Network has addressed the challenges of the multilingual and multicultural learning space, that is, the international classroom. At the Conference, the final outcomes of the project – the IntlUni Principles for quality teaching and learning in the multilingual and multicultural learning space with Illustrative samples and the IntlUni Recommendations will be presented and discussed with higher education (HE) stakeholders.

We are very much looking forward to presenting the outcomes of IntlUni to external stakeholders and to decision makers and colleagues in our own institutions. I think we can be proud of what we have been able to achieve, offering a picture of the current situation in the multilingual and multicultural classroom of European Higher Education Institutions as well as recommendations for how the quality of teaching and learning  may be improved in future, says Karen M. Lauridsen, IntlUni Coordinator
