The First International Staff Week will be held between 7 November 2022 and 11 November 2022 at the South-West University “Neofit Rilski” in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria.
The International Staff Week focuses on future collaboration perspectives, new horizons for cooperation, strengthening of international partnerships, as well as foreseeing new mutually beneficial opportunities for sustainable cooperation.
The main topic of the International Staff Week is orientated around the Internationalization of HEIs, STEM Education, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), Community Service Learning (CSL), and the future of the European Education Area in the context of the European Universities Initiative. The non-academic component of the International Staff Week is orientated towards all colleagues from HEIs affiliated with the Erasmus+ program (IRO staff members, Erasmus+ Faculty Coordinators, etc.). The teaching segment is addressed to all academic lecturers, regardless of their professional expertise, who will contribute to the topic of Staff Week and share their knowledge and know-how with students.
