2015 Case Studies

In preparation for this symposium, members of the Internationalization Council at Cornell were asked to identify examples from their respective college where international experiences have been successfully integrated into the overall curriculum and academic program of their students. Faculty and administrative leaders of the identified programs were then asked to address the following questions:

  • What makes this an internationalized curriculum? Please describe the experience abroad and how you internationalized the curriculum at home.
  • How has the international experience been integrated into the curriculum?
  • What are the intended student learning outcomes of the internationalized curriculum, how are they related to knowledge generation, changed attitudes, and developed skills, and how do you assess them?
  • What is the most important challenge or challenges (no more than 3) that you faced in internationalizing the curriculum?
  • What are up to 3 things you would like to be able to do that you have not been able to accomplish as yet?

The results of question 1-3 have been compiled into a series of short case studies that are summarized in this report. The report serves to inform, inspire and challenge the Cornell community to think about the integration of international experiences into to the curriculum.
