Project Team

The core project team for Global Dimensions in Higher Education share a range of relevant skills and experience in Academic Development, Connected Education and Open Educational Practices.

Internationalisation runs as a key theme through many of the activities the project team engage with in their work, as does curriculum innovation.

We are complimenting the experience of the core project team by bringing in specialists from our own and other partner institutions to act as critical friends to the project, to review materials and activities for the Global Dimensions in HE OER module, and to participate in the facilitation of the module as guest experts.
