International Week: ERASMUS+ BIP
Sharing Experiences
Dates: May 27 - 31, 2024

We warmly invite your teaching and non-teaching staff to our International Week, part of the ERASMUS+ Blended Intensive Programme. This event is a unique platform for sharing expertise and fostering collaboration.

Our theme, "Sharing Experiences," covers:

  1. Communication Challenges at HEIs in Crises – Solveig Jahnke will guide discussions on navigating communication during crises.
  2. Challenges and Practices of Quality Assurance: External Quality Assessment and International Accreditations in Higher Arts Education – Kristiina Krabi-Klanberg will lead exchanges and discussions on quality and accreditation processes.
  3. Learner centeredness in digitally enhanced learning environments – Kaja Toomla will explore emerging possibilities and practical challenges that digitalisation brings along.

These sessions aim to inspire and equip educators and administrators for an evolving educational landscape and we invite you to actively participate in talks, presentations and discussions.

The week not only offers invaluable insights for leaders, educators, researchers, and administrative staff but also includes a special highlight: the EKA graduation show, TASE 2024. This event showcases the exceptional talent of our graduates, offering a glimpse into the future of art, design, architecture, and cultural studies. We strongly encourage active participation, particularly in sessions that resonate with these creative fields.

As an ERASMUS BIP event, commitment throughout the week is important. This event qualifies for the Erasmus+ programme (staff training or teaching).

Please express your interest for participation here.

University of Lille

International Staff Week on international students wellbeing and mental health

Daten: 17.-21. Juni 2024
Thema & Programm: A recent report published by the World Health Organization revealed that 64% of young adults (aged 18-29) in European countries are at risk of depression. A similar study by Harvard University's Graduate School of Education found that young adults experience anxiety and depression twice as often as teenagers.
As the primary population of our universities, young adults' well-being is at the center of our daily work. We cannot ignore this issue, especially considering that a student with depression has significantly lower chances of academic success.
For international students, the mental health challenge is even more complex. First, cultural aspects regarding mental health and well-being vary widely, with differing levels of awareness and stigma. Second, language barriers can significantly hinder communication about mental health needs. Finally, accessing available resources may be difficult due to lack of awareness, false assumptions, or perceived ineligibility.
To foster a vibrant international environment and ensure the success of our international students, universities and their international services must prioritize student mental health and well-being. This staff week aims to elevate the issue to the forefront of our welcome strategies. Schauen Sie sich auch das offizielle Programm an.

2nd International Staff Mobility Week - Anadolu University

Dates: 6 May - 10 May 2024

Anadolu University is delighted to personally invite you to their 2nd Staff Week, which we will host this May 2024 (from May 6 to 10).

The theme of our event is Erasmus+ Blended Mobility. Our aim is to introduce blended mobility and blended intensive mobility programs to academic staff members and train them on these programs. We would like to host workshops where those faculty members with experience would share their experience(s) in creating, executing, and evaluating such a course with the rest of the participants. Therefore we are looking for faculty members with blended mobility or blended intensive mobility course experience. I would like to inquire if one of the faculty members at your university with such experience would be able to come to Anadolu University and make a presentation about his/her BIP course experience at our event.

We are able to host one academic per institution. There will be no participation fee for our event. It is possible to apply for funding within the Erasmus+ Program. If you do not qualify for the Erasmus+ Program funding, you may participate by self-funding as unfortunately, we do not have available funding for KA131 mobilities. Anadolu University will cover the costs of welcome dinner, farewell lunch, and social activities such as ancient site tours.
Also, if there is no academic staff who would like to present about a BP/BIP course, please feel free to spread the word to see if a faculty member would like to attend our event as a trainee and/or teach at the respective department.        

If you're interested, check out the full programme. After submitting your application, we will send further information by e-mail.
