  • ACA - Tell us how you engage with society?

    Within the framework of the IHES (Internationalisation in Higher Education for Society) project, the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) launches a survey that aims to identify interesting case studies and examples of good practice in international higher education for society.
    ACA would like to hear your story! To share your examples, make sure to fill out this survey by 1 April 2021, which will take only 15-20 minutes of your time. Interesting examples and best practice will be showcased in an online repository and analysed in an upcoming report.

    This exploration is part of the new Erasmus+ project Internationalisation in Higher Education for Society (IHES) which aims to build internationalisation activities concerning the real needs of society. Based on the needs analysis and this mapping exercise, different approaches will be explored, compared and tested in a "regional lab setting offered by Catalonia and the Olomouc region. The results will feed into new institutional guidelines for implementing IHES activities and the development of a regional model for similar initiatives in the future. If you have any questions about the survey, do not hesitate to get in touch with Martin Bogdan.

If you are new to the field of international higher education, we hope that you will consider joining us for this exciting and interactive event.
    Any graduate student or other emerging researcher is invited to submit a paper for inclusion in the conference program. Submissions must be received no later than April 15, 2021.
