International Staff Training Week „Staff goes international“

The International Office of Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts – Fachhochschule Dortmund is pleased to announce our first International Staff Training Week which will take place from 15th to 19th of October 2018.

Staff goes international

Under the motto “Staff goes international”, we welcome colleagues from international (partner) universities worldwide working in international relations or human resources. The programme will feature presentations, workshops and discussions around the topic of staff mobility as an integral part of HEI internationalisation. 

The staff week offers participants the opportunity to get to know Fachhochschule Dortmund as well as to present their university to international peers. In various sessions, the participants will be able to exchange best practice examples and develop new approaches for fostering knowledge transfer and mutual learning. After the event, all participants will receive a documentation of the results. Social and cultural events will accompany the programme to offer further networking and cooperation potentials among our international guests.


The preliminary programme of our International Staff Week can be found here.
