Internationalization Collaborative Across Bloomington (ICAB)

What was ICAB?

From 2010 to 2014, the Internationalization Collaborative Across Bloomington (ICAB) brought together faculty and staff from Indiana University Bloomington and Ivy Tech Bloomington in learning communities to design global learning experiences for all students. The Center for the Study of Global Change and the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning provided professional development as these learning communities internationalized courses and curricula.

This unique partnership between a major research university and a large community college helped better prepare students for employment and lives in our interconnected 21st century.

What were ICAB's goals?

  • Increase awareness and interest in internationalization as an essential part of the undergraduate experience
  • Investigate and incorporate ways that internationalization can enhance teaching, learning, and assessment at IU and Ivy Tech
  • Nourish internationalization efforts on both campuses
  • Build faculty collaboration across disciplines and across campuses
  • Encourage reflective and authentic assessment practices for faculty as they become responsive to the complexities of international teaching and learning within their classrooms
  • Develop an internationalization model that will be disseminated to other institutions of higher education locally, regionally and nationally

Who else was involved?

  • the IU Office of the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education
  • the IU Office of the Vice President of International Affairs
  • eight Title VI International Centers at Indiana University
  • the Offices of the Chancellor, Academic Affairs, and Student Affairs at Ivy Tech
  • the Association of American Colleges and Universities
