Reflections on the benefits of language learning | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

Back in August 2023, Durham University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Karen O’Brien, wrote a piece for the Higher Education Policy Institute, which argued that the current need for cultural diplomacy means there has never been a more important time for language study. This inspired me to put out a call on LinkedIn to any languages graduates and speakers of multiple languages in my network. I asked them the following question: ‘What skills has language learning given you that you ap... View Page

International strategy creation - Part 3 | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

In the first two blogs in this series, I explored why it’s important to engage your community when creating an international strategy and proposed some tips and guidelines on doing this effectively. Now I’m going to share two case studies, drawn from strategy projects I’ve worked on with universities, to illustrate different approaches to engagement. Each institution’s context and ambitions are different, so there is no ‘one right way’ of doing this, but I ... View Page

International strategy creation - Part 2 | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

My previous blog explored why engagement is such an important part of the international strategy development process. The three main reasons I outlined for engaging with stakeholders correspond broadly with three key (but overlapping) stages in the process of strategy creation: Building and broadening understanding (discussing why international engagement is important for the university community and getting challenging issues out on the table). Strengthening the strategy ... View Page

International strategy creation - Part 1 | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

Over recent years, I’ve worked with a number of UK universities to facilitate and support the development of their strategies for internationalisation or global engagement. Client institutions have varied in profile. I’ve worked with HEIs large and small; long-established and relatively youthful; comprehensive and specialist; research-intensive and teaching-focused; highly internationalised and just starting out on their internationalisation journey. Organisational priorities, cul... View Page

International Voices | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

I had great fun recently chatting to Professor Judith Lamie and Professor Chris Hill as a guest on the International Voices series of their Think Education podcast. If you haven’t come across it yet, do check it out – it’s a great resource and includes conversations with many more illustrious names than mine! We had a wide-ranging discussion, including: how university international strategies have changed (and are continuing to do so post-pandemic) the things that ha... View Page

Reflections on 2022 | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

On 6 January, I wrote a blog hoping that 2022 would be a varied year with a range of consultancy projects, interspersed with writing and speaking opportunities. The last twelve months have certainly lived up to those expectations. It occurred to me that, unless I’ve worked with you directly, it may not be clear what kind of consultancy I get involved in, since my blogs tend to be more about issues I’ve been researching or topics that have piqued my interest. So, the first part ... View Page

What would an ethical international strategy look like? PART 1 | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

In July 2022, I co-delivered a session at Universities UK International’s Pro-Vice-Chancellors' Forum with Professor ‘Funmi Olonisakin from King’s College London. We explored with delegates what an ethical international strategy might look like. This blog is based loosely on the first half of the presentation I gave to kick off our session, during which I shared some insights and quandaries generated by recent research and consultancy work. A future blog will draw on the... View Page

Can we decolonise internationalisation? | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

Whenever you do a piece of research, it always sparks new avenues to pursue or ideas that need to be investigated. Some of the conversations I had when interviewing sector stakeholders for my Global Strategies Report last year set me thinking about the intersection between HE internationalisation and decolonisation. My initial – perhaps naïve – assumption was that they are underpinned by similar values and aspirations: inclusivity, the broadening of perspectives and the ch... View Page

Negotiating new global dynamics | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

When discussing themes that the next generation of global engagement strategies should address, my interviewees highlighted the need for institutions to negotiate a new set of global dynamics, including some seismic shifts in the balance of power. Today’s blog provides an overview of key points that were raised. It draws on Chapter 8 of my report – UK Universities’ Global Engagement Strategies: Time for a rethink?. (There’s an overview of all the sections and Chapters ... View Page

25 years in international higher education | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

I was going for a run the other morning when it dawned on me that 2019 marks my 25th year in international higher education (which certainly makes me feel my age). A lot has changed since I started out on a nine-month contract as a part-time International Officer at what was then University of Wales Lampeter (now part of University of Wales Trinity St David). The institution had never had an International Officer before and my role was a hotchpotch of Erasmus exchange coordination, internatio... View Page

Governing body engagement with TNE strategy | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

This blog is the final one in a series, outlining the findings of a small survey conducted in June 2018. It expands on some of the top level findings presented at the TNE-Hub Symposium on ‘Transnational Education: Innovations in Practice’ on 11 July 2018. Presentations (in my case a joint one with Dr Janet Ilieva, entitled: Evolving TNE approaches: from short-termism to sustainability?’) are downloadable from here. The survey investigated: how TNE drivers and approa... View Page

Whither UK HE internationalisation? | Blog Entry by Vicky Lewis

Like so many UK higher education colleagues who care about the international ethos of our universities, I’m feeling somewhat despondent about the direction of travel. Staff from other countries are thinking twice about coming to work at UK institutions, which will reduce the diversity of our staff base and, with it, diminish the potential for innovation that is sparked by having a multiplicity of perspectives. Students from other countries are feeling discouraged from choosing the UK... View Page
