Get to know the Teacher's Journey

The Teacher's Journey is the support programme you have been waiting for to help you internationalise your teaching within the EDUC Alliance.

We know that the diversity of ideas and projects for internationalising academic work is immense. That is why we have created a flexible programme that adapts to the needs and interests of our teaching and research community.

As our motto says: "Your world just got bigger".  This is true whether you are interested in embarking on the adventure of internationalising your teaching, or whether you are an experienced teacher who wants to explore new horizons. We want to support you on your own journey into the world of EDUC. This support will be tailored to your own needs. We have created a shared virtual space in EDUC Moodle for all our EDUCators. There you can introduce yourself to the community, share your ideas for internationalisation projects, meet and get in touch with EDUCators like you who may be looking for partners for a collaborative project, and find professional development opportunities that will help you develop or strengthen the skills needed to facilitate digitally mediated intercultural learning processes. Through this virtual space, our communication will be more fluid and direct. Internationalisation experts will give you feedback on the project proposals you deposit in the platform. You will learn about the benefits and funding programmes we have available to help you realise your projects.
We understand the complexity of internationalising education projects, so we have done our best to streamline the content for you. We hope that this will make your adventure in EDUC even more rewarding and wish you a good journey!
