INTERNATIONALIZING YOUR UNIVERSITY

Date: 7-9 May 2012

‘Internationalisation’ has become a buzzword in higher education management, but what does it mean and how does a university become internationalized? This workshop explores the concept of internationalization using UNESCO, US and European definitions. We will discuss internationalization of the curriculum, and internationalization of teaching practices. We will also discuss the internationalization of research and research networks, including the setting-up of research management systems. How do you encourage more international publications? What matters in external research activities? Finally, we will examine the internationalization of the student body: how do you find international students, what do they expect from you, what sort of infrastructure is required?

Facilitators:

Dr. Tatiana Yarkova , Deputy Director for External Programs, CEU

Dr. Joanna Renc-Roe , Development Manager, CEU

Matyas Szabo , Director, Curriculum Resource Center, CEU

And guest faculty

Deadline for applications is April 1, 2012



LEADERSHIP IN TEACHING AND LEARNING AT UNIVERSITIES IN EUROPE

Date: 6-9 June 2012

European universities have been undergoing profound change in degree architecture, quality control, funding and management practices arising out of global, regional (European) and national policy trends. Teaching and learning is becoming part of this development, for example in the context of the Bologna 2020 agenda. But only some countries and institutions have attempted to systematically develop new policy, leadership and management tools in the area of teaching and learning in order to systematically enhance the quality of educational provision or to change organizational culture in line with newer demands and expectations for higher education in the 21 st century.

Building on a foundation of three highly successful workshops on this topic, this workshop will allow decision-makers, managers and professional staff at universities to become aware of best practice and policy developments in enhancing teaching and learning and faculty development in specific institutions. The workshop combines the expertise of two very different institutional settings. One of these is a small, innovative, international social science and humanities private graduate school in Central Europe with a history of outreach work in teaching and learning and with a dedicated center for teaching and learning which hosts this workshop. The other institutional case study is of a well-researched and internationally acclaimed teaching and learning strategy at a research-intensive large faculty of a classical Swedish university. These very different cases will be discussed in a broader European policy context and global trends in this area of higher education management and leadership will also be addressed. The participants will gain insight into the strategic aspects of policy formulation or agenda setting in teaching and learning, institutional and programmatic components, the scaffolding of support and reward structures for individuals and departments and links with large scale higher education policy developments on part of individual institutions. As a result, the participants of this workshop will be able to strategise and apply concrete approaches in their own institutional contexts.

Facilitators:

Dr. Joanna Renc-Roe , Development Manager, CEU

Torgny Roxå , Academic Developer, Lund University

Deadline for applications is May 1, 2012
