BISC-MAH: Experiential Learning and International Collaborations

This event was an introduction to the opportunities for collaboration with the Bader International Study Centre, with a focus on Experiential Learning and Online International Learning.

The Bader International Study Centre (BISC), housed at Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, is a branch campus of Queen’s University (Kingston, Canada). For twenty-five years it has served as a unique study-abroad experience for students of Queen’s and a variety of other international institutions. Thanks to its proximity, Sussex University has provided a natural collaborator with the BISC, providing guest speakers, resources and opportunities for interaction between Sussex and BISC students.   

One of the central elements of the BISC curriculum is a focus on ‘Experiential Learning Opportunities’ (ELOs), which in 2020-21 were moved online. Moving into the virtual space and the creation of MAH provide even more opportunities for productive and beneficial collaboration between our two institutions.  

This session included:

  • An introduction from Dr Joanne Paul (Sussex) about potential for collaborations between MAH and the BISC
  • Presentation from Dr Ruth Cereceda (BISC) on their pioneering use of Experiential Learning – including in a virtual format, including guiding principles and examples
  • Presentation from Dr Christian Lloyd (BISC) on Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), including past projects and future opportunities
  • Q&A Chaired by Dr Joanne Paul.
