Project Description

There has been a push for internationalisation in higher education due to its demonstrable benefits in terms of the development of key graduate attributes. This push for internationalisation has translated to an increase in demand for student placements and international mobility experiences in the sector. However a number of barriers to student participation exist including; limited availability of physical placements, cost, and inflexible course structures. Supported by the Alliance, Associate Professor Basia Diug, Monash University and Associate Professor Olanrewaju Sorinola, University of Warwick plan to develop a ‘Global Classroom’ that utilises a novel digital approach whereby students engage in case-based learning (CBL) to solve a problem collaboratively using an offthe-shelf mobile technology. This virtual global classroom has the opportunity to innovatively, quickly and efficiently bridge this international divide whilst also using the emerging field of learning analytics to better understand and optimise student learning and the online environment.
