DZS: call for International Higher Education Experts

The Czech National Agency for International Education and Research (DZS) is launching a call for experts for the Monitoring Internationalisation of Czech Higher Education (MICHE) project
Under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, DZS has been monitoring and evaluating internationalisation at higher education insitutions through the MICHE project with the goal of strengthening internationalisation at the institutional level and providing policy makers with information on the current state and development of internationalisation.  

The monitoring consists of a multi-stage process including self-evaluation, expert visits and interviews, Action Plans, consultations and feedback loop, and national and institutional level reports and recommendations. In 2021, DZS plans to continue the mentioned  process with additional higher education institutions and place a special focus on their involvement in the European Universities Initiative.  

DZS is now looking to broaden the expert pool and is seeking experts with relevant expertise in the field of internationalisation in higher education. Experience related to strategic management and internationalisation in higher education is essential. A thorough understanding of the European Universities’ Initiative is required. Practical experience with monitoring processes and knowledge of the Czech higher education environment are an advantage.  

During the year, experts can expect to spend up to 3 weeks on site visits (in person or online depending on the current pandemic measures), prepare reports, give feedback and suggestions to set specific goals and improvements in the area of internationalisation and set up or alter the monitoring methodology to reflect the universities’ focus or involvement in university alliances. Experts receive remuneration for each institution assessed.  

Interested candidates are invited to send their CV and brief motivation letter to until March 30, 2021. The selection process will be conducted by DZS in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in April.
