 Day 2: interactive workshop (10:00-12:00)

​How far is outward student mobility understood, aligned to or built into your university strategy beyond the international office? This workshop will demonstrate new ways for international offices to co-design and co-deliver mobility opportunities for students.

Attendees will explore how to express value propositions in a language that engages other university functions, and ensure programmes are designed for mutual benefit. The workshop will cover:

  • Alumni engagement and advancement 
  • Domestic and international recruitment
  • Learning and teaching
  • Industry and research engagement

There will be space for participants to explore and create strategies that can assist engagement across these areas. Trevor Goddard will draw on international best practice from other global and national strategies, such as Australia, for participants to consider how they might implement change at their home institutions.
