Internationalizing Teaching and Learning

Inspiring and Supporting Innovative Faculty and Staff

Internationalizing Teaching and Learning (ITL) is an intentional approach to maximizing students’ international, global, and/or intercultural learning. The purpose of internationalizing teaching and learning is to provide strategies for faculty and staff to introduce all students across the University of Minnesota system to ways of considering their discipline of study through international, global, and international lenses, regardless of whether students study abroad or participate in other types of intercultural interactions during their time on campus.  

Continuum of Faculty Engagement for Internationalizing the Curriculum and Campus

The Internationalizing Teaching and Learning Initiative provides opportunities along a continuum of engagement so that University of Minnesota faculty and instructors can get involved at various levels of intensity. For example, our website includes some low-intensity but impactful strategies to begin internationalizing courses as well as ways to engage more intensively with the Internationalizing Teaching and Learning team.
