Abstract

Through the case study of a Chinese University of Hong Kong undergraduate law class, this chapter demonstrates how Internationalization at Home can be achieved through a number of means, including: Utilizing an intercultural and international student body, their experience and knowledge; the use of digital tools to facilitate peer interactions and the co-creation of knowledge; course content which reflects an internationalized approach to the subject-matter of the course; and partnerships with external partners and organizations being incorporated into the course. Using a mixed methods approach, our case study demonstrates the successful use of all of these means to achieve a highly Internationalized-at-Home course which equipped students with important practical skills in an intercultural learning environment.
