ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement hosted an interactive discussion of international joint and dual degree programs.
As colleges and universities consider their place in an ever-globalizing world, international joint and dual degrees can help institutions move beyond individual faculty and course-level collaborations to establish on-going, multidimensional partnerships with counterparts abroad. Such programs are complex, however, and entail a variety of issues and challenges.
Framed by data from ACE’s recent report, Mapping International Joint and Dual Degrees: US Program Profiles and Perspectives, this webinar addressed:
- Strategic planning and the role of joint and dual degrees in institutional internationalization
- Good practices for program development, administration, and management
- Academic issues and challenges, including curriculum design and use of technology
Accompanying the webinar is a printed (PDF) brief featuring 8 articles by experts in the field. Designed to complement the webinar and explore related topics in greater depth, the printed brief is an invaluable resource for campus leaders making strategic decisions about international programming and initiatives.
