International mobility

 

Helping the incoming and outgoing international mobility is an imperative requirement for French HE institutions.

UNT can offer shared and customized OER (glossaries and synthesis in foreign languages, subtitles, French for specific purposes training units) in order to attract international students and to help them overcoming language barriers. It can also reinforce forecasting initiatives to attract new students.

 

UNT’s OER can help outgoing students who choose to take distant learning classes for different reasons (second exam session, one’s future orientation or reorientation).

 

The 2 following scenarios illustrate what UNT’s OER can offer to the incoming international mobility. Of course, they must complete a language refresher course.

 

 
Scenario 1
  • Suggesting to foreign students UNT’s OER that match their needs to complete their oral classes (writing is generally better acquired by non-natives)
  • Offering French as a foreign language or French on specific purposes trainings
Scenario 2
  • To identify OER to complete a student class
  • To translate OER beyond contents, when they have educational and cultural specifics

The outgoing international mobility increases continuously in our training programs (ERASMUS) as well as in our program layouts.

The students involved in this mobility wish:

  • To take training units for second exam session
  • To have the possibility to take a distant learning training unit for a course that takes place when a student is abroad
  • To prepare their next courses

This is clearly an Open and Distance Learning issue (ODL) that can rely on the preventing student failure and /or on the people with disabilities scenarios.
