Teaching and learning in international programmes

More and more programmes are being offered in English to both Danish and foreign students. The result is often a great diversity in students’ educational background, language and culture, which is reflected in the teaching, in the interaction between students and teachers, and between students. In some cases, programmes are literally international, as their learning outcomes and content also have a clear international dimension. Other programmes have been changed slightly in relation to an original Danish degree programme.

Either way, there is a need for research and development projects to identify possibilities and challenges in international education and come up with concrete examples of how teaching and learning can be organised to give all students the best possible outcomes.
