Intercultural collaboration for HE students: current and possible research directions
Other conference contribution, 2021

In an increasingly globalized world, an international and intercultural learning environment is becoming a reality for many higher education students and teachers. In the process of internationalizing higher education, universities aim to create effective and inclusive learning environments for both home and international students. Intercultural group work (IGW), in which home and international students collaborate on set tasks or projects, is considered a valuable learning tool to deepen students’ learning and prepare students for participating in a globalized world. However, the presence of multiple cultures does not automatically lead to meaningful collaboration. Therefore, to benefit from a culturally diverse learning environment, more research is needed into different aspects of intercultural collaboration between students.

 This session aims to create a network of researchers in the area of intercultural group work in higher education to share research ideas, benefit from each other’s expertise, strengthen each other’s research, and explore possible collaborations.
