TICKET First International Staff Week
Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, the TICKET Project held its first International Staff Week virtually from May 17th – 21st 2021. Although we could not meet in person, the project took advantage of the virtual format to invite staff from HEIs all over the globe to test the Training Programme modules, feed into the development of the Staff Toolkit, and learn the benefits of joining the TICKET Community of Practice. We were able to gather valuable feedback from the attendees to help further develop project’s outputs. The virtual event consisted of four interactive webinars:
1. “Let’s go abroad! Supporting students and staff to make mobility truly intercultural”
2. “Internationalising teaching and learning”
3. “How to encourage contact among diverse groups of students”
4. The TICKET Community of Practice: supporting academics and professional staff with holistic skills in intercultural competence
TICKET Kick-off Transnational Meeting
Marked the official Ticket Project kick-off meeting, serving as the first major internal forum for discussion to kick-start the building blocks of the TICKET Project.
The three day event included planning of the project’s intellectual outputs, as well as workshops in Intercultural Competence and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Academic and administrative staff from all TICKET partner universities gathered in Edinburgh to decide on how to move from ambition to action.
