Article: Engaging Science Faculty in Internationalization


Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

An article in the spring 2012 issue of IIENetworker Magazine discusses the challenges that the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison faced while internationalizing its science curriculum. The three core challenges were: "1) the rigid curricular structure of science education; 2) the conviction that science and, by extension, a science education exist outside of cultural influence; and 3) a general lack of incentive for faculty to engage in international education." The ways that the college was able to overcome these challenges include: "1) advancing the partnerships that science faculty already enjoy with their colleagues in other countries; 2) tailoring study abroad programs to the unique needs of science students; 3) focusing internationalization efforts on the applied (as opposed to the basic sciences); and 4) supporting, rewarding, and recognizing instructors who engage in curriculum internationalization."
