Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

This session focuses on first year undergraduate students’ encounters with internationalism at university. University is a key site for educating responsible citizens of the future, graduates who will work in their professional contexts within ethical and sustainable parameters. It is important to understand how young students are experiencing internationalism and how their encounters with diversity, particularly in the first stages of their university experience, may enable them to become ethical professionals. This session draws on a research and evaluation project sited in engineering and design. The session will present students’ perceptions of what it means to be a global citizen in the context of their academic discipline. Participants will also consider their own university context and its approach to educating the global citizen.
