Linnaeus University International Staff Training Week 2019

"How to build intercultural competence for Internationalisation at Home with Summer Schools as an example"


The seventh edition of Linnaeus University International Staff Training took place during May 13th - 17th, 2019 in the cities of Kalmar and Växjö, the two campuses of Linnaeus University in Sweden. 

The week offered both faculty and staff opportunities to learn and share about competencies required for working in intercultural environments within higher education. Staff training and professional development took place through various workshops with both international participants as well as staff and faculty from Linnaeus Univeristy, and through job-shadowing colleagues at Linnaeus University.

Some voices from 2019 years staff training week:

- It was interactive. Talking was the center and communication with participants - it was not a conference type where you sit, listen and go home. 

- I really appreciated the work, activities as well as the wide variety of nationalities and the presence of your colleageus from Kalmar and Växjö.

- I found all the input from workshops and presentations interesting and helpful. There was a variety of approaches, possibility of meeting our counterparts and learning about other Universities' approaches to IaH issues.

- Workshops were amazing, delicious food, great colleagues and staff, gorgeous weahter! Thanks.
