It is with great pleasure that we herewith invite you to join our International Staff Training Week 2020, which will take place from June 8 to June 12, 2020.

We are happy to announce that in 2020, we will offer five parallel programs full of variety - there will be workshops, group events, tours, presentations, sportive activities, and, of course, time to connect and network.

The five programs are as follows:

Career Service: Teaching Students how to Teach: Models of Peer Teaching and Peer Counseling in Higher Education

Library: Libraries on the move: innovating services for research, learning and publishing

Staff development and continuing education: Science management - profession, tasks, challenges and methods

Alumni Networks: Learning from the International Experience

Windows into Internationalization: Fostering Intercultural Competence among Students and Staff

Participation in our International Staff Training Week is possible for administrative staff working in the fields of career services, libraries, continuing education and HR, alumni offices and colleagues working in international offices. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your colleagues working in the above-mentioned areas.

The participation fee is 100 € per participant, which includes a welcome package, five lunches and coffee breaks, a summer reception and a joint boat trip. You are kindly asked to cover the participation fee as well as other expenses for travel, accommodation and dinner by using Erasmus+ training mobility grants.

If you would like to participate, you need to submit an application - you will find a preliminary version of each program as well as the application form on the website of the training week:

Application deadline will be February 9th. Please note that the selection of participants will take approximately three weeks; results will be communicated via email at the beginning of March.

In case of questions, remarks, or other issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We are looking forward to receiving your registration and to welcoming you or your colleagues to Freie Universität Berlin in June for an interesting and fun International Staff Training Week 2020!
