Abstract

Earlier this year City appointed Professor Victoria Joffe as Academic Director, International. Her work includes Internationalising the Curriculum (IoC), the process of ensuring that we foster an inclusive environment for international students and promote global perspectives and opportunities for learning in a global context for all students. The prioritisation of Internationalisation at City is evident in the two international Performance Indicators for 2026; one of which specifically focuses on Internationalisation of the Curriculum

IoC is the thematic focus of this year’s Annual Programme Evaluation (APE), the primary way in which we plan and report on performance against metrics for student satisfaction, progression and employability.

This event is your chance to learn more about this emerging field and how we are taking it forward at City. Information will be provided on how you can best embed internationalisation in your curriculum and ensure your students are receiving a holistic global experience across all aspects of the curriculum including: programme and module specs, learning outcomes, curriculum content, mode and methods of teaching and learning, assessments and support services.

We’ll hear from Dr Anthony Manning at the University of Kent, who is a leader in this area, and has spearheaded a similar transformation at the University of Kent, as well as from Professor Victoria Joffe, both of whom will share practical ways of taking forward this initiative across a range of disciplines and subject areas. City staff and students will also share current examples of good practice.

The event will give you inspiration and practical ideas for how to ‘Internationalise’ your own programme. Even if you think your programme is already international, or that this may not apply to you, the session will give you more ideas on  how to create a global experience for all your students and ensure that the perspectives of our diverse student body  enrich your programme for everyone.

About the Speaker

Dr Anthony Manning, Dean for Internationalisation, University of Kent

As Dean for Internationalisation, Anthony is responsible for the development, review and implementation of international activity across the University. As Kent adopts a 360 degree approach to internationalisation, this involves key aspects of education, research and student experience.   Anthony's particular area of academic specialism is in the teaching and assessment of English for Academic Purposes (EAP), Modern Foreign Languages and Academic Skills. Anthony’s recent publications are associated with training for educators in the assessment of EAP. Anthony is also one of the principal authors of the Transferable Academic Skills Kit (TASK), published by Garnet. He has also authored other texts for students and teachers of EAP and English for Specific Academic Purposes with Cambridge University press, Oxford University press and Garnet.

Anthony first joined the University of Kent in 2010 as Director of the Centre for English and World Languages, having previously worked at the University of Reading as Assistant Director to the International Study and Language Centre. During his career Anthony has also taught in France, Germany, China and Japan.
