When: September 30, 2013–October 21, 2013 at 9:30 am–11:00 am

In order to support Ohio State’s key initiative of Internationalization, UCAT is facilitating a 4-week Reading Group during the Autumn Semester 2013. In the group we will read and discuss articles from the current literature on the internationalization of the curriculum, with a focus on internationalizing courses taught on Ohio State’s campuses. The goals are to reflect on what it means to internationalize the student learning experience and to consider different internationalization strategies.

We have arranged for meeting space with videoconference capability on the main and all branch campuses, and we would like to extend a special invitation to instructors on the branch campuses to participate.

DATES: Sept. 30, Oct. 7, 14, and 21st (four consecutive Mondays)
TIME: 9:30am to 11:00am.
