The key objective of the training course is to qualify university staff from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, to manage processes and tasks of internationalisation in the area of higher education. The programme will enable the participants to build up improved and more effective structures of internationalisation at their home universities.
The programme consists of three workshops and in depth e-learning phases. The three interconnected workshops will take place on 1-12 September 2014, March/April 2015 and 21-30 September 2015. To guarantee the most individual-tailored training, the participants will receive reading and working material shortly after their selection. Thus, they will begin the analysis in their home countries 8-10 weeks before the first workshop in Hannover takes place. This initial material aims to provide an insight in conceptual issues, as well as to foster the reflection on the individual/institutional status quo.
At least 3-5 years of experience in the area of Higher Education Management: either as international office staff or higher education managers responsible for coordinating international activities.
Preferably not older than 50 years of age.
Active and excellent English language skills (speaking and writing) are indispensable.
Commitment to attend all workshops and to develop an individual PALP, fulfilling approx. 2 hours’ workload weekly (e-learning).
Minimum technical equipment that guarantees the participation in the e-learning phases: internet connection and, if possible IT support for video conferences.
Up to 30 participants will be selected. A gender balance is aimed at, given that qualifications and other criteria are fulfilled.
