Peer Learning Seminar on the Quality of Staff Training Mobility in Higher Education
Cross-border mobility of university staff is being perceived as an increasingly important value over the past years. Ongoing international discussions demonstrate the need for structured and strategic approaches towards this topic. The professional development of both teaching and non-teaching staff is essential to the success of internationalisation processes at the universities and can contribute towards integrating non-mobile groups of students as part of ‘internationalisation at home’ concepts.
Staff training opportunities started to be funded under the Erasmus program from 2007. As a consequence of the continuous growth of staff mobility the need for a strategic approach to the quality of mobility has increasingly gained relevance. Career development structures can significantly benefit from an interface with the strategic alignment of international activities. Therefore this TCA will focus on staff training opportunities with a particular focus on linking internationalisation strategies of higher education institutions with human resource development.
The event is open to participants in the field of higher education. The primary target group of the seminar is HEI staff responsible for staff development (e.g. HE managers for staff affairs, heads of HR departments).
Participation on invitation only.
