Embedding Cultural References to Catalyse the Transition to Active Learning in Transnational EducationFunding source: Westfield Fund
Start: 12-10-2022 / End: 31-12-2023
Many students in our transnational programmes, but also international students in our home programmes, experience difficulties adapting to active learning approaches, resulting in lower engagement and lower academic performance. Cultural differences derived from more traditional education systems play a major role in these difficulties. This project proposes co-creating with students the embedding of cultural references to ease the transition from traditional lecturing to flipped classroom.
