Managing International Cooperation in a Global Classrom: Maximizing the Impact of Mobility Programs for Universities, Researchers and Students

COURSE RATIONALE

The course will introduce the participants to the main debates and challenges that frame international university cooperation in general and mobility programs in particular. The institutional support and incentives for mobility programs and their alignment with the institutional mission and funding will also be discussed. Using case studies from OSUN institutions and others, it will present good practices in managing mobility programs throughout the engagement cycle for both students and faculty. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the management of mobility programs at their own institutions, get feedback from their colleagues and instructors and develop specific proposals on enhancing their universities’ performance and contributing to this in their own professional capacity.
