  • Workshop: Communication & Public Engagement

    In times where crisis is (almost) an everyday affair and social distancing is the rule, Public Relations is highlighted as a key role for all organisations, including Universities, as a valuable tool to preserve the reputation and to guarantee the relationships with all of the organisation’s stakeholders.

    In this workshop ,we will explore how a Communication and Outreach Unit can effectively shape the public image of a University, namely:

    • How to build and maintain a positive reputation of the organisation;
    • How to reach each of its audiences effectively;
    • How to connect with students and staff, in the era of distance learning;
    • How to engage the primary and secondary school students (pre-University target group) with outreach activities;
    • How to respond to a public relations crisis.

    For more information, please contact Raul Santos at the U.Porto Public Relations Department rsantos@reit.up.pt and international@reit.up.pt

  • Workshop: Educational Development

    The programme can be found here: Programme EUGLOH Educational Development Workshop

    During the Educational Development Workshop, let's talk about the role of pedagogical innovation in Higher Education. Across all EUGLOH Universities, we will discuss and exchange new approaches in pedagogy and lecturer training as well as the use of digital learning tools for distant learning and simulation. You'll have the opportunity to create a staff network and to discover how every university addresses pedagogical challenges linked to student success, the Covid-19 crisis and internationalisation.

  • Workshop: International Relations & Student Mobility

    The programme can be found here: Eugloh Overview Programme International Relations 2022

    Internationalisation and sustainability

    Through the European Green Deal, the continent is striving to become climate-neutral by for instance, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and preserving the natural environment. Leaders and practitioners in international educations are aware of their responsibilities, and many universities now start to discuss and act on how internationalisation can become more sustainable from an environmental perspective as well as from a social perspective. At the same time, the importance of student mobility – physical as well as digital – is highlighted for creating a European Higher Education Area and a sense of belonging.

    Topics that will be discussed

    This digital conference will discuss sustainable internationalisation in a broad sense. Recent guidelines and knowledge will be reported, sustainability will be discussed and questioned, and good practicies will be presented.

    Questions that will be addressed are:

    • What is the EU Green Deal and how green are European universities?
    • How can the EUGLOH universities internationalisation activities contribute to sustainability and what are the challenges?
    • How can EUGLOH contribute to sustainable European student mobility and partnerships, and what obstacles are there to overcome?
    • How can EUGLOH internaitonalisation contribute to change travel and meeting patterns, to reduce the carbon footprint?
    • What aspects of sustainability exists beyond environmental sustainability?
    • Shall european universities be recalibrated or reimagined?

  • Workshop: Library

    The programme can be found here: Eugloh Library Workshop 2022 Programme

    The Library Workshop will attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of the new tasks of university libraries. Many new tasks and issues have been taken on in recent years. Some of these come from the field of open science or analogue-to-digital transformation, while others are related to the general research support (e.g., advice on publications) or more specific issues (e.g., research data management). Experience has shown that in a progressive university environment, new demands and expectations are constantly emerging for libraries: university rankings, scientometrics, innovative user training and many more.
