In March, ACA’s member OeAD organised the Bologna Day 2023 dedicated to the transversal topic of internationalisation explored from the perspective of professional development. Hosted by the Paracelsus Medical University in Salzburg, the event brought together 160 participants including 40 speakers.
The participants discussed the key links between human resources development and management and the broader field of internationalisation at universities and highlighted the following aspects:
Following a series of inspiring keynotes, five workshops were organised to dive deep into the following topics: systemic and strategic approaches to internationalisation, individual and institutional impact of Erasmus+ staff mobility, foreign language and intercultural skills of academic staff, intercultural skills of administrative staff, and internationalisation of university teaching. The recommendations developed by the workshop participants will be published on the event page.
The institutional impact of Erasmus+ staff mobility is a topic of interest to several ACA members. Six ACA members including AMEUP, CMEPIUS, DZS, OeAD, Rannis, and TPF are jointly conducting a study to map various impact areas of staff mobility and collect good practice in knowledge transfer activities pursued by selected higher education institutions in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Iceland and Slovenia. The preliminary findings of the study were presented at one of the five workshops at the OeAD Bologna Day and the final report will be published this summer. Stay tuned!
