What you'll learn

Release date: 16 May 2019

Traditionally, when higher education institutions have taken keys steps to internationalise themselves, they have focussed on students and academic staff. Administrative staff have often been left out of the equation despite being the backbone of many universities. The Systemic University Change Towards Internationalisation (SUCTI) project has been working to change this by raising awareness of internationalisation among the administrative staff of European universities. 

This one-hour webinar will look at the benefits and options for uniting all staff in the goal of internationalisation. If non-academic staff can be engaged in the importance and processes around internationalisation, they hold the potential to become key agents for change.

We will explore:

  • Ways of implementing comprehensive internationalisation at home
  • The benefits of in-house training for staff versus exchange programmes
  • How to deliver an in-house training course at your institution (case study from SUCTI project)

How to get the most out of this webinar

This webinar is beneficial for anyone wanting to optimise internationalisation at their own institution. It is especially relevant for department heads of international offices, human resources and professional development programmes, as well as for any staff responsible for internationalisation at home.
