To share experiences and learn from each other are fundamental goals of all activities within the U4 network. In the tradition of these goals, the IPT&L-programme supports members of the U4 Universities to connect and better understand, how working in an international classroom (and beyond) can be enhanced.
Conducted as yearly event for teaching coordinators and curriculum developers this conference seeks to provide training on ‘what it takes to organize and act meaningful in a good degree programme’ from an international point of view. Organised as event that combines interdisciplinary perspectives via their didactical approaches, it invites scholars and programme coordinators, academic lecturers and consultants in international programmes to discuss their thoughts.
This years’ conference is titled 'From Theory to Practice. From Discussion to Cooperation' and invites all IPT&L-alumni as well as newly interested people to hand in their contributions.
