International Staff Training Week Marburg (13.05. - 17.05.2019)

The topic of the International Staff Training week in Marburg was “Quality Student Mobility: The Role of skilled Professionals in Erasmus+ mobility Programmes”. 34 participants from different universities of Erasmus+ partner and program countries took part in this programme.

The main issue of the week was to identify relevant skills, know-how and processes to acquire the necessary competencies for higher education staff working with student mobility. The program was structured along the three mobility periods: before, during and after mobility. The sessions gave the possibility to discuss in several seminars, workshops and with the input of presentations about indicators for quality student mobility. This included as well the evaluation of competencies and skills, which are needed for qualified work.
