Supporting Outgoing Students for Overseas Academic Exchange via Online Micro Modules Interacting Across Cultures (IAC)
Abstract / Video
In response to the global higher education trend of internationalisation and an increasing number of CUHK students going on for overseas academic exchange programmes, the Independent Learning Centre (ILC), in 2016, developed a series of online micro modules titled “International Across Cultures” (IAC) with an aim to enhance outgoing students’ intercultural competence so they can maximize their learning outcomes when interacting with people of different nationalities. Apart from discussing the quantitative and qualitative data collected via the online feedback forms through a pilot study conducted in 2017, this presentation will also show how the micro modules provided independent learning opportunities outside classroom before students’ departure and upon their return to Hong Kong in various contexts. Ideas about further expanding and extending the IAC to serve an even bigger number of CUHK students will be shared in the presentation as well.
