​The latest installment of Internationalization in Action, addressing curriculum internationalization at the discipline level, is now available on ACE’s website.

Internationalization in Action is a series of free online briefs featuring institutional strategies and good practices gathered from participants in ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement programs and other experts in the field.

This edition is the fourth and final focused on internationalizing the curriculum. The first three centered around internationalization of individual courses, academic program components (majors, minors and certificates) and degree programs.

This final paper covers the role of discipline associations and accreditors and includes first steps for internationalizing the curriculum and strategies for assessing global learning.

The next series of Internationalization in Action will cover internationalization in student affairs, including supporting international students, building the co-curriculum and strategies for student affairs leaders. The first edition will be released this fall.
