Summary of the talk by Dr Sara Ganassin and Dr Müge Satar:

An Intercultural Approach to Internationalisation Virtual Exchanges (VE)

    The talk is based on the NCU funded project ‘Enhancing internationalisation of Chinese Higher Education Institutions: An intercultural approach’ (中国高校国际化建设:跨文化的路径). The project focuses on Internationalisation at Home- the process of integrating an international, intercultural or global dimension into post-secondary education- in Chinese Higher Education. In the context of HIT, Internationalisation at Home (IaH) is concerned with achieving partnership and collaboration with universities and institutions in other parts of the world depending on information and Internet technologies that facilitate international and intercultural contact and solidarity. During the talk, presenters will provide an introduction to internationalisation and internationalisation at home followed by a discussion of how virtual exchanges (VE) represent the ideal context for sustainable and equitable international experiences. Facing challenges arising from the limits by the COVID-19 pandemic, VE, which enables intimate and indepth contact between people by removing barriers of distance and expenses, holds promise for making up for the tremendous loss of chances for international cooperation and  collatoration. Presenters will offer examples of how IaH and VE have been implemented at Newcastle University and will invite the partcipants to discuss how internationlisation is important for HIT at the threshold of the new centennial.
