eQuATIC university staff training in Prague: Optimise your Erasmus+ partnerships

A university staff training entitled Optimise your Erasmus+ partnerships: evaluation of Erasmus agreements in preparation of the next programme will be conducted in June 2019 as part of the two-year Erasmus+ co-funded eQuATIC project. The training will be led by the experts that have developed the eQuATIC tool and carried out research around quality in international university partnerships. The event is organised by Ghent University, together with Charles University, and will be held at the Centre for International Cooperation in Education (DZS) in Prague, Czech Republic from 24 to 26 June 2019.

The aim of the training is manifold. Firstly, to learn about the research underpinning data-informed decision making in international university partnerships. Secondly, participants will also learn how to evaluate practices and processes on international university partnerships at their own university and compare practices with other institutions and learn how to successfully peer-review Erasmus agreements. Finally, they will be able to create action-plans for their institution on how to efficiently use data to impact internal policies.

The main objective of the whole project is to generalise the use of the eQuATIC prototype in order to apply it for assessing quality of partnerships amongst Higher Education Institutions. Upscaling the use of eQuATIC on a European scale will lead to better monitoring of the quality of international cooperation and will contribute to more successful partnerships and therefore a more efficient European Higher Education Area.
