I would like to thank colleague Francesco Zucchini for this interesting contribution. Very useful to get a better sense of where we are heading (and how) towards internationalizing our teaching activities; and particularly useful for our research group in Padova, Next Generation Global Studies, currently considering opening a new erasmus mundus master program. As NGGS we have been reflecting upon the very transformations of higher education institutions in a global context since late 2012; including addressing the challenges associated to the use of the English language, and misunderstanding deriving also from identifying the use of such language with internationalization. Based on that experience, I would like to point to some interesting reflections by Hans de Witt (professor of Internationalization at Amsterdam University) and Jim Coleman (coordinator of a project titled Englishization of Higher Education in Europe). To continue the discussion, I am glad to send an open invitation to IPS readers to the closing session of the upcoming Winter School ‘Times and Spaces of Globalization: Europe in a Global Context’ organized in Padova next February. On Friday February 28, 2014, we shall address issues pertaining to ‘Global education in a European context?’. While acknowledging that teaching in English is increasingly part of our experience, we suggest that a number of other aspects involved in internationalizing education need to be taken into consideration: from intercultural competences, of both students and teachers, to teaching and learning styles and approaches; from de-centralizing European perspectives to engaging with diversity, of teaching experiences and disciplines.
