Staff Training Week 2018

Mass or Class – Limits of Mobility

April 16th – 20th 2018

We would like to take a closer look at the two seemingly contrary principles of quality and quantity of mobility as well as its limits within three areas:

1)      Mobility

  • How do we define and measure quality of partnerships?
  • The student factor – making study abroad appealing for incoming and outgoing mobility
  • Incentives to get academic and administrative staff abroad.

2)      Recruitment

  • Do Higher Education Institutions need student recruitment?
  • Where does student recruitment start and end?
  • What are the challenges and chances of regionally focused strategic student recruitment?

3)      Refugees

  • How does the influx of refugees shape Higher Education?
  • What are the assets and limits of refugee Higher Education programs?
  • How can we successfully integrate refugees in university life and existing mobility programs?

All colleagues from partner universities interested in these topics are invited to join us!


Have a look in our preliminary program 2018.
