The programme builds on the organising team’s expertise of coordinating and conducting an Academic Development master programme for academics and researchers (EDU-RES – in its 17th year already), as well as on the collaborative work on European projects with a focus on evolving trends in academic communication.
The programme will cover three thematic areas:
- academic communication with a focus on the latest developments – challenges and opportunities in the digital age;
- research related aspects (methodological approaches, communicating research outcomes to various audiences, peer-reviewing and responding to reviewers, networking as support system);
- challenges and opportunities related to teaching via the medium of another language.
In addition, there will be sessions on critical thinking and creative thinking applied to academic research and education.
