This seminar aims to share the rewarding journey and observation of outstanding practice of internationalization and curriculum leadership in the University of Oxford in sustaining the culture of teaching excellence. In late 2021, Vincent visited Oxford and conducted meetings with academia, professional staff and students from faculties and departments, in addition to his observations in one MSc programme. More specifically, the seminar would serve as a collegial platform for the discussion of relevant insights for the following three questions:

  1. Internationalization:
    How internationalization and curriculum leadership have been promoted in the University of Oxford: a focused case study in one MSc programme?
  2. Competitiveness:
    How can Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme (TEFS) synergize our professional development and global competitiveness in internationalization and curriculum leadership?
  3. Global Citizenship:
    How can TEFS benefit our students’ learning experience and sense of global citizenship from the perspective of internationalization and curriculum leadership?

In this connection, the seminar is delivered to share the insights reflected and to provide a professional platform for further collegial discussion among colleagues. The target audiences of the seminar include fellow colleagues who might be interested in applying TEFS, internationalization or curriculum leadership in their professional capacities. This seminar also paves the avenue for another seminar ‘Strategic Leadership in Innovation, Inter-disciplinary Collaboration and Teaching Excellence: a Case Study in the University of Oxford’ to be delivered on 6 April 2022, during which how fellow colleagues with strategic positions’ might promote innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration and teaching excellence in the seminar would be discussed.
