The road to Damascus: Values and skills development to enhance
learning and teaching in internationally diverse higher education

Dr Irene Macias


Dr Margarida Dolan

International students and staff come to the UK attracted by the high
reputation of its teaching and research, making UK Higher Education
one of the most international in the world.  The focus is increasingly
on developing students with awareness of global citizenship. In this
presentation we reflect on the tensions between local and global
contexts encountered in our practice as international staff.  We also
present approaches to learning and teaching that help support the
development of more globally aware higher education communities.
