					Internationalizing the University: Constructing the UK Business School Classroom
as an International learning Space.

Dr Yvonne Turner, Aberdeen Business School

This seminar explores the evolving relationship between curriculum design, teacher
perceptions and the lived experience of students participating in an international
programme of study within a UK university business school. The paper illustrates the
challenges inherent in supporting cross-cultural learning within diverse cohorts and
explores the use of reflective learning strategies as a means of promoting cross-cultural
understanding. The paper concludes with a discussion about the positioning of university
curricula as international spaces within local contexts and questions the degree to which
implicit pedagogical norms support inclusivity.
