Global Mind Monitor
Internationalization is an important trend in education. The Global Mind Monitor is an online tool that allows students and professionals to reflect on their intercultural skills. The monitor was developed in cooperation with the research group International Relationship Management of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, for students in higher education. Respondents complete a questionnaire and get access to their results in a personalised and interactive online dashboard.
When using the tool, colleges and universities can set up their own research for groups of students and professionals. All participants receive an automated invitation for a questionnaire (in English or Dutch), with which they assess their own intercultural skills, knowledge, attitude and behaviour at that moment. This questionnaire includes a 360-degree feedback option.
As soon as respondents have completed the questionnaire, they get access to their personal dashboard. They can view their scores, compare them to those of fellow students, and previous measurements (longitudinal).Each score is accompanied by an explanation, examples and literature, so it can be placed in the correct context.
Colleges and universities can use this tool to help their students and teachers reflect on the benefits of their international learning experience. By measuring intercultural skills, the educational institution can also meet the requirements of quality assurance or international rankings. Institutions have access to the anonymised results via a management dashboard.
