Glasgow Caledonian University, partner in the EQUiiP project, would like to invite you and interested colleagues to the EQUiiP multiplier event “Enhancing educational quality through internationalisation”.
EQUiiP is a partnership of seven European universities which promotes Education Quality at Universities for inclusive international Programmes (EQUiiP). Building on the wide range of international expertise available through the participating universities, the project has developed a continuing professional development (CPD) programme and is finalising an open access web portal, including all associated educational resources. The CPD programme has been specifically designed for educational developers and lecturers who work to internationalise their programmes. With this multiplier event we wish to share the outcomes of EQUiiP and its strategic implications.
More information on EQUiiP, the programme of the multiplier event and how to register can be found here. You may also register directly here.
This event is co-funded by the ERASMUS+ programme, no fees are charged.
Between 14th January and 18th January 2019, the EQUiiP project held its 6th Transnational Meeting, followed by its Winter School titled “Designing & Teaching inclusive international Programmes” hosted by Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM).
During the Winter School, the complete EQUiiP programme was delivered for the first time to 16 participants from several countries. It was also a week of hard work for the EQUiiP project partners, who dedicated themselves to facilitating and observing the training sessions: Introduction to the International Classroom, Internationalising Course Design, Feedback & Reflective Processes, Intercultural Group Dynamics and the Role of Language.
Alongside the busy schedule, there was also room for cultural activities. The UCM team organised a visit to the Prado Museum, one of the main art museums in Spain.
We extend our warm thanks to all participants and EQUiiP project partners for a fruitful and inspiring week; and also to the colleagues at Universidad Complutense de Madrid who made the events possible.
Representatives of all the EQUiiP partner universities are currently at the University of Bordeaux for the transnational meeting which took place on Monday 14th May and the Summer school which started on Tuesday 15th. This is an opportunity for us to try out all of the EQUiiP modules on the same group over four days and to see how they work in combination. We are lucky enough to have a fantastic group of participants who are engaged and enthusiastic and the facilitators have been getting some great feedback.
The social programme has more than made up for the cool spell that Bordeaux is currently having, with a delicious meal at the panoramic restaurant at the Cité du Vin on Monday evening, a walking tour of Bordeaux today and an evening reception in the university gardens tomorrow evening.

The EQUiiP team were hosted by the University of Copenhagen for their fourth Transnational meeting from 25th to 26th January 2018.
Teams from University of Groningen, Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Copenhagen and Freiburg University presented early development of two modules – Facilitating Group Dynamics to enhance intercultural development and learning and Feedback and reflective practices. The group also previewed the first EQUiiP summer school, which will take place in Bordeaux in May.
Many thanks to our colleagues from University of Copenhagen for such great organisation – and good restaurant choices!
