Internationalization in Higher Education: Empowering innovative teaching and learning practices across borders

The sixth webinar in a series of thematic webinars organized by the Profformance+ project consortium will cover the topic of internationalization in higher education and present innovative teaching and learning practices in an international context. The webinar will be held online on the 16th of May 2024, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET, and hosted by the Foundation Tempus.

This event is dedicated to inspiring examples of good practice in higher education, in which internationalization, as one of the thematic fields within the Profformance assessment tool, plays an important role. Projects that are a part of the Profformance teaching excellence database and that were implemented at higher education institutions in Austria, Hungary, and Serbia will be presented at this event.

The webinar is intended for lecturers and administration staff of higher education institutions, as well as researchers, decision makers and other stakeholders in the field of higher education. You can register for the event until noon of the 16th of May by filling out the registration form.

At the webinar a new call for the Profformance Teaching Excellence Award will be introduced as well, which will be organised during the fall of the academic year 2024/2025 as part of the Profformance+ project.

The webinar will be held in English. You can read more about the event itself and the event topics on the Profformance+ project website, where the agenda will also be available.

This webinar will be the sixth in a series of thematic webinars, which is based on the Profformance teaching excellence database. The database consists of around 130 good practices in higher education prepared by teachers and professional communities from six different countries for the call for proposals for the Profformance teaching excellence award for the academic year 2021/2022.

The Profformance+ project is implemented by a consortium consisting of relevant ministries from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria and Croatia, as well the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Serbia and the Foundation Tempus. The goal of this project is to support the quality enhancement of teaching and learning at higher education institutions in the European Higher Education Area by developing and promoting a tool for the assessment of teachers and by employing a system of incentives, while collecting and sharing examples of good practice.
