IntlUni Newsletter # 5

Welcome to the fifth IntlUni newsletter

Dear Subscriber, 

We are pleased to circulate the 5th 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.

Current status of IntlUni: Workshop and All-Partner Meeting in Braga, November 4-7th 2014

As with our previous All-Partner Meetings, IntlUni’s 5th proved to be an important milestone, as we move from identifying internationalization challenges and good practice in the 38 participating HEIs from 27 different countries towards finalizing our recommendations for quality teaching and learning in the multilingual and multicultural leaning space. Two years into the project, what made this meeting special however was that it involved a host of superlatives and firsts.

Major IntlUni Workshop with External Experts

The IntlUni Erasmus Academic Network held its first major workshop in connection with the fifth IntlUni partner meeting at the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal on 4-7 November 2014. Approximately 70 people from higher education institutions across Europe took part in the event that marked the end of the first two years of the IntlUni project.

The full day workshop was first devoted to presentations by invited external experts on topics relevant to the IntlUni aims and objectives. In the afternoon the draft IntlUni principles for quality teaching and learning in the multilingual and multicultural learning space were presented by the work package leaders and subsequently discussed by a panel of external experts.

Evaluation and quality assurance in IntlUni

The IntlUni Evaluation Board recently took part in the IntlUni workshop event and All-Partner meeting in Braga, Portugal on 5-7 November 2014. We asked members of the Evaluation Board for their thoughts on the project, that is, results of the Workshop and 5th Partner Meeting in Braga as well as how they see the project developing.

Krista Varantola, Chancellor emerita , Tampere University, FI and Chair of Evaluation Board:

“The workshop turned out to be very useful. It was a kind of test‐bed for justifying the Intluni approach. The critical comments from representatives of similar projects helped the project partners to crystallize the aims of IntlUni by generating arguments in support of the IntlUni approach and its bottom‐up premises”.

The Braga experience

IntlUni’s destination in the first week of November 2014 for the 5th All Partner Meeting was Braga, Portugal’s third largest city, and home to the University of Minho. Our hosts had prepared us in advance for the likelihood of autumnal storms in this north-westerly part of Portugal and we were not disappointed as the early bird arrivals on Monday were met with the full force of an Atlantic gale. Flying into Porto from all corners of Europe, including such differing climes as Cyprus and Finland, the turbulent conditions provided for delayed landings and a somewhat unnerving glimpse of white-topped Atlantic breakers as we circled to land.
