Abstract

This is a set of ‘hands-on’ reflective resources, designed to support university teaching staff to develop and facilitate intercultural engagement in learning, teaching and assessment. It seeks to provide a set of practical starting points with evaluation and reflection tools for staff and course teams and reflective discussion exercises for staff for use in course teams or with students. It is not designed to be comprehensive, but as a supportive ‘way in’ to facilitating cultural engageme

This resource is based on the following principles:
1.Intercultural engagement is an ongoing process that is never ‘finished’ – there is always more to learn
2.Intercultural experience is valuable, but does not automatically ensure effective intercultural engagement
3.There are generic principles of intercultural engagement which can be supported across different disciplines and approaches
4.A focus on (reflective) practice can lead to a shift in intercultural understanding and engagement
5.People will bring varied levels of prior knowledge and experience to their use of this resource

The resource is also based around the six themes which emerged as the chief concerns of students and staff at the University of Brighton in a series of interviews and focus groups. These themes are:
1.Intercultural dialogue
2.Global citizenship
3.Positioning the academic
4.Design of curriculum and assessment
5.International collaboration and exchange
6.Communications
