Title Gender orders in the internationalisation process : from outside in and inside out
Author(s) Dychawy Rosner, Irena
Date 2015
English abstract
Currently, as a part of transcultural education, a growing amount of alternative cross-border educational programs are offered. Critics have suggested that practices focus less on contemporary gender issues in international educations than on issues of language and culture. Globally, employees in health and social care professions are predominantly female, which thus attracts reflective learning on issues connected to gender. This article illuminates an example where Swedish and Danish nursing students participating in an exchange program in Öresund Region have shown gender responsiveness and preconceptions during their clinical practice abroad. Further, this article proposes some ways forward to a more pedagogical approach to increase vocational awareness of gender issues.
