It is possible to address the needs of different countries and, at the same time, make available learning environments that take into account individual and regional differences among students, with the help of internationalized programs. International institutions, which engage in educational activities in many countries, serve communities with different languages, cultures and ethnic backgrounds on multiple continents by implementing a range of programs.

This session aims to examine multiculturalism, multilingualism, and differentiation methods that consider students’ needs within the context of the internationalization of educations programs.

Discussion Themes

  • What features do international education institutions highlight in their learner profiles, and how are they reflected in their education and training processes?

  • What opportunities do multicultural and multilingual programs offer?

  • What is the best way to strike a healthy balance between the spread of international curricula and the preservation of individual and national diversity?

  • On the process of an international curriculum design, what should be considered?

How can the 21st-century skills be effectively associated with curricula?
