Internationalising the curriculum in health: An overview
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015 Sense Publishers. All rights reserved. In our overview of ‘Internationalising the curriculum in business’, we recalled Hans de Wit and colleagues’ observation of the differing ‘accents and approaches’ to internationalisation. In that section, we noted an emphasis on the development of broad graduate attributes-the ability to live as well as work ethically in an interconnected world-and an absence of a pronounced disciplinary accent. In contrast, the narratives about internationalising the curriculum in the health disciplines seem to be driven more by disciplinary imperatives. Regardless of differences in location, discipline, and scale of curriculum innovation, IoC in all of these chapters is defined by an ethical commitment to safe, accessible health care for all, regardless of locale, culture or language.
