The network endeavours to strengthen the process of building structured knowledge and share experiences on:
•How to internationalise the curriculum
•How to work with intercultural skills among both teachers and students
•How to support university management's strategy of internationalisation and implementation of this strategy for students and teachers everyday
•Pedagogical tools for teaching mixed groups where the language of instruction is English (language, culture, and education)
The SIG network meets at least twice a year, hosted at member institutions across the country on a rotating basis. Meetings take place in Danish and English as needed.
