The University of Sydney has an exciting target for 2020: for 50% of students to undertake an outbound mobility experience before they graduate. Improving the integration and uptake of outbound mobility experiences is central to the redesigned undergraduate curriculum, which ensures that every undergraduate course contains academic rigour, cross-disciplinary learning, global perspectives and real-world projects.
This e-poster will explain why mobility experiences are an important part of the Sydney undergraduate experience, drawing from research in the field as well as the university’s vision for achieving its goal in 2020. It will outline ways in which Sydney Global Mobility and the faculties and centres on campus work together and support each other while working towards this common goal.
This e-poster will provide you with an understanding of:
* the benefits of mobility experiences for students
* how to set an outbound mobility goal and develop a working plan to achieve it
* how to navigate silos within a university to work towards a common goal
* how to encourage more students to take up an international experience.
