This workshop will examine issues related to the impact of transnational education and the constructs of diversity and transformation in a hyper-connected world. It will unpack and address issues around the internationalisation of higher education. It will examine the potential of Artificial Intelligences (AI) within internationalisation offerings.
2. Challenge Accepted! The International of Doctoral Studies as a Response to the 4th Industrial Revolution
The 4th Industrial Revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres. The workshop will explore the relationship between 4IR and the internationalisation of doctoral education.
3. Intercultural Competency (Train the Trainers) As Artificial Intelligences increasingly perform at a level beyond Human capacity, Humans will have to evolve and focus on the skills unique to them.
This highly interactive workshop will equip and train participants in using an intercultural methodology piloted by UNESCO. Participants will develop and practice key elements of intercultural competence including greater self-awareness, listening for understanding, openness, respect, reflexivity, empathy, increased awareness of others, and in the end, greater cultural humility.

4. When Your Audience is More Social Media ‘Savvy’ than You are…. a gentle guide to writing content for social media
The 4th Industrial revolution is calling on us all to adapt and develop new methods of communication. This workshop will provide the necessary and practical tools required to write content for social media platforms, guide planning and social media strategy, engagement, make posts, and provide exposure to ‘new’ tools to design visual posts.
5. Capacity Enhancement and the Internationalisation of Doctoral Studies: Concrete Approaches to Internationalisation of Higher Education- The YEBO Study
Explore how the 4th Industrial Revolution is swiftly reshaping peoples’ everyday lives through advancements in fields such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing and biotechnology. The workshop examines the Erasmus+ Project YEBO as a case study to highlight how internationalisation may help address challenges presented by the impact of the 4th industrial revolution on Higher Education in particular.
6. Immigration in the Higher Education Sector: From Letter of Offer to Registration: the relationships and processes between the student, the university and the Department of Home Affairs (DHA)
As AI makes the digital world increasingly accessible, human beings still have to go through extensive processes to physically cross borders. This workshop will provide an overview of DHA immigration processes and requirements, and explore what works and what can go wrong from the moment an international student receives a letter of offer to being registered. Discover the different roles and responsibilities of students, international offices, IEASA, Embassies, VFS and the DHA, in preventing and resolving issues.
