In recent decades Internationalization-at-Home (IaH) has been viewed by many European universities as a solution for providing students the global competencies required from professionals working in an interconnected society. The goal of IaH is to transform classrooms and campuses into spaces that intentionally promote intercultural, international, and global learning.

Due to the topic’s current importance there are numerous courses and workshops addressing the issue of IaH. Nevertheless, the summer course outlined in this proposal is one of the very few providing a comprehensive view on the multiple facets of IaH in an intensive format that brings together experienced instructors and allow for mutual learning.   

The summer program will offer participants an occasion to discuss the challenges and opportunities brought about by the internationalization of universities. It would also present a wide range of case studies including successful and less successful ones and challenge them to re-examine the degree of internationalization in their own institution and national higher education system and whether it is in line with their universities’ mission.
