An Interview with Dr. Jos Beelen (Interviewed by Laura Baumvol)

University of British Columbia


The SFU Ed Review Journal interviewed Dr. Jos Beelen for this Special Issue on Internationalization of Higher Education. The interview was conducted via video by Dr. Laura Baumvol. Dr. Beelen is Professor of Global Learning at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. He leads a research group that explores internationalisation at home, particularly the skills of lecturers to develop and teach internationalised curricula. Action research is a key method for this research theme. Another research theme is the continuum of internationalisation, from primary to tertiary education. Jos has published a range of articles on the implementation of internationalisation at home, both from educational and organisational, systemic, perspectives. Dr. Beelen is also a Visiting Professor at Coventry University and a senior trainer for the European Association for International Education (EAIE). From that association he was the recipient of the 2018 President’s Award for his contribution to internationalisation at home.
