The International Mindedness Journey: reaching out and reaching in

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper explores key research findings from a study of International Mindedness (IM) in nine IB World schools identified as being strongly engaged with IM, drawing on the voices of leaders, teachers, students and parents/ carers.

This paper will show how conceptions of IM converged on three philosophies. 1] IM is relational; it is about reaching out to others from diverse cultures. 2] IM is intra-personal - reaching in to better understand ourselves with respect to different others. 3] IM is a process or a journey.

The paper will share examples of promising practice and discuss some of the challenges for developing IM.
