REVISITING ‘DIVERSITY’ IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Society for Research into Higher Education

Date – Tuesday, 08 July 2014: 11.00 – 14.45

Venue – SRHE, 73 Collier St, London N1 9BE

Network – Access and Widening Participation

Institutional commitments to enhancing and promoting diversity are ubiquitous across UK and US higher education institutions. However, the concept of diversity is often used in taken-for-granted ways, or too readily collapses back into discussions of how students can be ‘shaped’ to better embrace difference. This seminar brings together two thought-provoking papers, one from the US and one from the UK, which question and challenge the concept of ‘diversity’ in relation to the internationalisation of higher education.

 

Speakers:

 

When international classrooms become Chinese students-dominated classrooms: Revisiting celebrated diversity and the internationalisation of higher education
Phan Le Ha, PhD, Associate Professor of Education, College of Education, University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA
Seeking the internationalised self: transformative learning for staff as internationalisation of the curriculum in higher education
Dr Catherine Montgomery, Associate Dean (international), Faculty of Education, University of Hull, UK
