METU Departmental Erasmus Coordinators are kindly asked to fill out this form regarding the incoming staff that will be hosted in the related Academic Departments and Administrative Units at METU under the Erasmus+ KA103/131 programme. Please only provide information for the mobilities that are conducted under Erasmus+ KA103/131 programmes with European countries.
Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignments (STA) is a field of activity that allows HEI teaching staff of a Turkish higher education institution (holding ECHE) to teach and carry joint academic/educational activities at a partner HEI (holding ECHE) in the program countries.
The receiving organisation must be a Programme Country HEI awarded with an ECHE or a Partner Country HEI recognised by competent authorities and having signed an interinstitutional agreement with the sending Programme Country partner before the mobility takes place. Here you can find the list of Erasmus partners.
STA is a daily basis activity and a grant payment is made for the lecture days. For this reason, in the Staff Mobility for Teaching Mobility Agreement a specific teaching program must be indicated on a daily-basis.
The purposes of STA may be summarized as follows:
- to provide teaching staff with opportunities for personal & professional development
- to share expertise in specialist areas within teacher education, to deepen mutual understanding of different European Education Systems and to raise the profile of the European Dimension in Education
- to allow students who are not able to participate in mobility to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of staff in other European institutions
