The ICCI program mixes dedicated small group workshops, focused on either course or campus internationalization, with large group sessions which encourage perspectives from across any institution. Some sessions are presentations, while others involve participants in activities. Different aspects of the ICCI program are meant to model ways to engage audiences in the internationalization process in higher education institutions.
- Course Focus: Teaching and Learning
This track will provide a strong foundation for internationalizing teaching and learning. By considering the importance of not just what our students know, but what we ask them to do with that knowledge, participants will think deeply about how they can engage their students and teach more deliberately toward globally responsible citizenship. Participants will be introduced to pedagogies, instructional methods, best practices, and innovative means of teaching and assessing international/global learning goals. They will work collaboratively to develop learning experiences for students that achieve specific international learning outcomes. Participants will learn how to design or revise a course such that it is intentionally international in scope. Ultimately, by the end of the institute, participants will have the skills, resources, and knowledge to teach more critically, effectively, and internationally.
- Campus Focus: Institutional Strategies
This track explores the ways in which global learning both contributes to and is advanced by overall programs of internationalization at departmental, school, campus, and university levels. It uses presentations, break-out sessions, and the collective building of hypothetical internationalization plans to examine the following issues: 1) making the case for internationalization; 2) planning for internationalization; and 3) implementing internationalization.
Participants will be able to:
- Articulate the importance and meaning of internationalization to appropriate stakeholders
- Identify the internationalization continuum and their institution's current position
- Apply the Five Phase Planning Process to creating an Internationalization Plan Phase One - Setting the Stage by Identifying Key Indicators and Stakeholders for Success Phase Two – Data Gathering through Internationalization Asset Mapping Phase Three – Vision Setting / Connecting Institutional Missions and International Vision Phase Four – Establishing Internationalization Goals, Strategies, and Metrics Phase Five – Implementation and Assessment
- Identify individual and organizational responses to change and develop skills for productively managing those responses
- Learn and share best practices
Pre-Institute Workshop (2017)
An optional Pre-Institute Workshop is designed for those new to the field and/or seeking a firmer grounding, is offered on the morning of Sunday, May 21, 2017.
- The Increasingly Interconnected World of Academic Internationalization: The Essential Context
Internationalization means different things to different people. Within higher education, it is a term in motion, with new meanings continually emerging as institutions engage with the broader world. This workshop will enable participants to sort out the wide range of definitions and goals now encompassed by the term - an essential context for thinking about internationalization at their own institutions. We will examine how and why "internationalization" came to replace "international educaton;" the many, sometimes competing, goals that now drive it; the pros and cons of different approaches; and what is gained by viewing internationalization as a globally collaborative process. The ultimate goal is to broaden our understanding of internationalization in order to better guide our own institutions in developing innovative, effective strategies for curricular and other international transformations.

The final session was outstanding, and energized me after some busy and full days. I applaud you for that -- energizng people at the end of an institute is a big challenge!ICCI Participant
