Linnaeus University International Staff Training Week

Each year, Linnaeus University organises an international staff training week, where we welcome international colleagues from our partner universities around the world, both academic and administrative staff. During the week, several presentations and workshops will be held on topics related to intercultural competence, internationalisation at home and the global and virtual classroom.
These workshops/presentations/seminars are open to all employees from Linnaeus University (academic and administrative staff) and provide a fantastic opportunity for international networking, training in intercultural competence and English language skills, as well as increased competence in issues related to internationalisation.

Previous Lnu International Staff Training Weeks

The theme for 2020 years virtual international staff training week, targeted at both  academic and administrative staff, was Competencies, skills and tools for intercultural higher educational environments. The presentations ad workshops offered professional development within virtual collaboration, intercultural communication and internationalisation. 

The week gathered faculty and staff from Linnaeus University International partner universities and from Linnaeus University. This year we had participation from 28 colleagues from 23 partner universities representing 17 countries.
