These tools should be used in conjunction with the HEA Framework for internationalising higher education and include the following:
- Reflective questions. The questions aim to support the process of applying the framework into policy and practice. As an aid to reflection, they offer a way of surfacing underlying issues behind effectively internationalising HE, and indicating areas for development as part of action or development planning.
- Responsibilities. The responsibilities aim to inspire and assist in the process of internationalizing higher education. They could be applied as part of strategy review and development, staff induction, development and/or appraisal, reward, recognition or promotion.
- Vignettes. The vignettes aim to illustrate how the areas of focus have been implemented within UK higher education providers. These real life examples were submitted by members of the HEA’s internationalisation research and practice networks. They can be used to inspire practice or prompt dialogue and debate.
- Framework glossary. The glossary provides a list of key terms used and how they are defined for the purposes of this framework.
