SUCTIA Webinar: Engaging academic staff in internationalisation

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020

June 26th, 2020

Academic staff are central stakeholders in higher education institutions and play a crucial role in their organisations’ internationalisation efforts. But how can academic staff best be supported to engage with their institutions’ internationalisation strategies and activities?

Join us on Friday 26 June at 11:00 CEST for this free, one hour webinar that will present the first findings of an EU-funded project, Systemic University Change Towards Internationalisation for Academia (SUCTIA), which is focused on these dynamics.

In this webinar you will:

  • Be exposed to the findings of an exploratory study on academic staff engagement in internationalisation, featuring data from 15 different European countries. 
  • Gain insight into the experiences of several different European universities that are committed to advancing quality training in internationalisation for academic staff

Presenter Laura Rumbley will be joined by panellists Joanna Domagala, from the Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU), Poland; Jane Pollard, from the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation (CHEI) at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy; Maria Amélia Tomás Veiga, from the Universidade do Porto (U.Porto), Portugal; and Marina Casals Sala, from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), Spain.   We hope you can join us.

SUCTIA kick-off meeting

Wednesday, December 18th, 2019

Dec 16-17, 2019

Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland

AMU hosted the first transnational project meeting that took place in Poznań on Dec 16-17, 2020. The event was attended by 16 participants from 8 Partner institutions. The aim of the meeting was to present an outline of the project, as well as its agenda, schedule and discuss the division of work and responsibilities. We have also already started working on the first Intellectual Output, that is “European report on systemic university changes towards internationalisation for academic staff in European Higher Education Institutions”, which will be coordinated by EAIE in the cooperation with all Partners.

One of the meeting outputs is already a short video explaining what SUCTIA is all about and why it is important to internationalize all groups of staff at HEIs, in particular academics.
