Short description of project

Three Universities (Lund University (LU), University of Southampton (UoS) and National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) have collaborated in a strategic partnership funded through Erasmus+, European Commission. The aim of the project was to internationalise their curricula to support the development of intercultural skills and professional identity amongst occupational therapy students. The three-year project offered  two learning and teaching activities - a physical exchange and a virtual learning activity both of which were designed to internationalise the classroom; an exchange of staff skills; educational materials to enhance academic debate in the field of occupational injustice and the development of a tool to measure professional identity.  This handbook will offer commentary on the planning and execution of the activities and the outcomes and sustainability of the project.
