INTERNATIONAL STAFF WEEK ON BEST PRACTICES IN COMPREHENSIVE INTERNATIONALISATION

8 - 12 MAY 2017, UNIVERSITAT ROVIRA I VIRGILI, TARRAGONA

URV is publishing for its 25th anniversary a publication on bes

 

t practices in internationalisation and during the International Staff Week we will hear from the different authors of these articles: professors, administrative staff, managers… sharing with all participants their best practices. During the week, participants will also get to share one best practice from their home institution, thus enriching the experience of all those present.  The methodology of this international staff training week will be very interactive and participatory. Participants will work hard, but also play hard.

During the ISW, the publication will be presented by one of the most prominent Keynote Speaker's in the world about this issue, Prof. JOHN HUDZIK, from Michigan State University, USA. A well-known figure in the world of international higher education on both sides of the Atlantic, John Hudzik was honoured with the Transatlantic Leadership award in 2014. He was acknowledged as an outstanding advocate for mutual understanding and respect, and was recognised for maintaining and investing in beliefs, values and benefits between and for organisations in both North America and Europe. John was a Professor at Michigan State University (MSU) and a NAFSA Senior Scholar for Internationalization at the time he received this award.
