Proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Active Learning in Engineering Education: bridging the gap pages:1-8
Active Learning in Engineering Education workshop (ALE) edition:11 location:Copenhagen, Denmark date:20-22 June 2012
The Integral Student Support in Internationalisation project (ISBI) is funded by the K.U.Leuven Association (2010-2012). Active partners are members of the academic internationalization staff, lecturers and coordinators of 9 higher education institutions of the K.U.Leuven Association.
The ISBI vision is to develop an INTEGRAL system to support incoming and outgoing students before, during and after their experience abroad, involve those students in internationalisation@home and thus allow all students to obtain international-intercultural competencies. Included is intensive use of PAL and buddy techniques.
This approach is a form of active learning support: the aim of internationalisation and internationalisation@home is lifelong learning and multicultural competence development. A mobility can imply new insights in the discipline, new skills, another way to see themself. But this is not evident. ISBI wants to focus the international experience more on conscious competence development, also in internationalisation@home. One example of an active learning tool is PAL.
