Embedding and Facilitating Intercultural Competence Development in Internationalization of the Curriculum of Higher Education

Ying Ji


This paper attempts to analyze how to embed and facilitate intercultural competence development in the process of internationalizing the curriculum of higher education institutions. Specific learning outcomes, effective pedagogical intervention and multimethod assessment are critical components for developing students’ intercultural competence in an internationalized curriculum. The learning outcome statements need to be realistic, concrete, and measurable. Elements that determine the quality of intercultural contact, coupled with the personality and biography of the students should be considered when implementing the learning activities. Multimethod assessment is suggested for providing a comprehensive picture for the progressive development of intercultural competence. And it is equally necessary to make sure that the assessment criteria align with the specific learning outcomes and learning activities.
