Best practice

Teaching staff across a wide variety of academic disciplines at UCL have incorporated aspects of the global citizenship agenda into their course design. Here are some examples of best practice in internationalising the curriculum.

The Bartlett School of Planning

Aligning education for global citizenship with the global and national disciplinary context:

Life and Medical Sciences

A programme that recognises the significance of culturally diverse prior learning and implications for transnational online learning:

Engineering Sciences

Engineering uses a universal language and students come from a range of countries and cultural backgrounds, so why does engineering need to internationalise?

Integrating social, ethical, historical and communication dimensions within a programme of learning:

Institute of Archaeology

This case study describes a course that considers sociocultural factors influencing professional practice:

Centre for Applied Global Citizenship

UCL's Centre for Applied Global Citizenship outlines models for enhanced learning that build capacity for active global citizenship:

Slade School of Fine Art

International and transcultural residencies are a growing part of the pedagogy of the Slade:

Institute of Child Health

A cross-disciplinary approach in the preparation of students for a range of roles in the global health workforce:

Hebrew and Jewish Studies

This discussion piece explores the role of religion within the curriculum and multi-disciplinary approaches and applications:

Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience

Two examples of collaboration on the development of a joint degree or degree components:

Department of Science and Technology Studies

As part of its Global Citizenship programme, this department runs an action-based group-work course in which students change the world by developing and implementing a project to enhance citizenship and leave a legacy of new understanding, better process or improved social relations.
