STUDY IN academy: in-house training is the first in-person event of its kind after the pandemic

23 representatives from 11 Czech universities attended our training focused on Teaching in English.

STUDY IN academy, a series of webinars for representatives of Czech universities focusing on topics such as digital marketing, recruitment and internationalisation, turned face-to-face for a while for the first time since its beginning in the winter of 2020 and moved from the online world to the premises of the Czech National Agency for International Education and Research (DZS).

STUDY IN academy under the Study in the Czech Republic (STUDY IN) initiative focused on Teaching in English: from institutional strategy to language support at the end of June 2022. STUDY IN with the European Association for International Education (EAIE) created a two-day in-person training for employees of Czech universities, which 23 representatives from 11 Czech universities attended. The training was delivered by two speakers, Esko Koponen and Jennifer Valcke. They not only shared with the participants their extensive experience but also created the training in such a way that, despite the almost 30-degree heat, the participants highly praised it and especially highlighted its interactive part.

The STUDY IN academy also takes a few days off during the holidays. It will return, back in the online environment of webinars, with the new academic year in September/October 2022. The next in-person version of the academy is planned for 2023.
