Ikudu and Erasmus

Welcome to the iKudu Project

The Methodology/Project Description

The project will adopt an adaptive management approach to provide structure to an iterative process of robust decision making to ensure that we leverage the best theories, practices, and systems to achieve our objectives. A steering committee (SC) will coordinate activities and working groups (WGs) to ensure constructive alignment throughout and provide ongoing feedback to all stakeholders. Three WGs will work concurrently towards the linked objectives, all cycling through the three phases of the project, as will be explained in detail below. The following WGs are planned:

  • WG1: Internationalisation of the Curriculum (leader: Jos Beelen and Lynette Jacobs)
  • WG2: Planning, developing, and implementing COIL virtual exchange projects within institutions (leaders: Eva Haug, Lize-Mari Mitchell and Jon Rubin)
  • WG3: Planning, developing, and implementing training programmes (this working group will only become operational at a later stage of the project).

All partner universities will participate and contribute towards the member WGs, comprising SC members and the other executive, academic, and administrative professionals, identified and assigned at the discretion of each of the universities. We divided the project into three phases. The WGs will be active throughout the project. Synergy between the WGs will be encouraged through the involvement of the SC in the project's yearly workshops, where WGs will engage, share reports, and adopt insights for successful progression to the next phase. The SC will annually report to all WGs and relevant stakeholders. The WGs will be active throughout the time span of the project, from conception to completion.
