TAMK 1st year students, studying in the English Degree Programme in Nursing, and their two responsible lecturers were happy to host in Tampere international guests from THUAS, 14 students with their two lecturers (15-19th October). The idea was to study together during the week, and to plan future cooperation and joint studies, including COIL assignments and a short exchange visit to The Hague. The visitors had a chance to participate in the International Week for Health Care and Social Services’ programme. This was a great opportunity to get to know each other, discuss similarities and differences within the educational system, health services, etc. The cooperation continues in January 2019 in The Netherlands.
Isabel Düsterhöf, lecturer in International and European Law and Mobility Coordinator at THUAS Faculty of Management & Organisation, was hosted by the Faculty of Law, Masaryk University (October 15-19, 2018). She taught a short intensive specialist course onthe topic “The ICC and International Criminal Law in Practice” for a group of students. She also consulted and discussed further academic cooperation between MUNI and THUAS.
Mijke Post, lecturer in Communication, led three seminars in Career Writing for Masaryk University academic staff (13 participants), doctoral students (7 participants), and a methodological seminar for the teachers of the Language Centre.
Both Masaryk University units highly appreciated the opportunity to host visiting professors and experts from THUAS. It was a delight to work with such dedicated and professional colleagues.
This time The Hague Network had the opportunity to meet in two different places: in The Hague (10th October), hosted by THUAS, and in Kleve (11th October), hosted by Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences.
These two days were focused into deepen collaboration and work on common objectives and strategic planning.
Paul Shotton, Antje Grebner and Paul Nixon (from Management & Organisation, European Studies) gave papers at the symposium “Populism and the Future of European Integration”, organized by the Centro de Estudios sobre Democracia, Universidad Francisco de Vitoria in Madrid, that took place on 8-9 October, 2018.
