Guest lecturing, participation in professional and scientific events and projects
Our faculty is also keen to provide opportunities for our lecturers to gain experiences as visiting lecturers abroad, and to participate in international conferences, training courses, as well as international research and projects. Due to travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, only a few mobility opportunities awarded for the period from 1 December 2019 to 30 September 2020 were realized.
BBU Oriental Business and Innovation Centre (OBIC) Scholarships
Several faculty members of FCHT have already had the opportunity to participate in educational-research mobility outside Europe, mainly at universities in East and Southeast Asia through grants from the BBU Oriental Business and Innovation Centre (OBIC).
Erasmus+ staff training mobility
In order to meet the increased quality needs of our foreign language courses, we support the development of the foreign language skills of our lecturers, researchers and administrative staff, and the expansion of their international experience. The Erasmus+ mobility scheme for teachers and staff offers a good opportunity to do this, and an increasing number of our staff are taking advantage of it. Our faculty has also been receiving a number of foreign researchers and lecturers annually.
Within the framework of Erasmus+, not only our students and lecturers but also the staff of our faculty performing administrative tasks have the opportunity to gain experience abroad, which is the purpose of the Erasmus+ staff mobility program.
Strategic cooperation projects
Strategic cooperation projects with our partner institutions are also being developed. More than 800 students from 14 universities took part in the ICCAGE project, which ran from 2015 to 2017 and was awarded the prestigious prize for the best higher education project of the year in the Czech Republic in 2018. The following international strategic projects are in progress and have been created together with academics from Czech, Finnish, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Slovak partner universities:
- INCOLLAB (2019-2021): The project seeks to expand collaboration opportunities for colleagues who teach languages for specific purposes and other vocational subjects. Details on the Course development projects page.
- CORALL (2019-2022): The project focuses on developing autonomous learning opportunities for students. Details on the Course development projects page.
- BrandY (2020-2023): The goal of the project is to create an innovative, experience-based learning module and integrate it into higher education course offerings in the field of brand management. Details on the Course development projects page.
