Share your knowledge with us!
We feel privileged to welcome you in VIVES. The professional visits of colleagues from our partner institutions, be it as a guest lecturer or as a guest researcher, are very important for maintaining the vitality and quality of our own educational standards.
Our own colleagues are keen on discussing with you didactics, methodologies, contents and new approaches of course materials. Our students are eager to listen to other perspectives than those from their regular lecturers and they enjoy this way of Internationalisation at Home.
Apart from teaching, we expect you to have discussions with our colleagues, who will probably take you out for a pub crawl after hours or take you to one (or several) of the many places of historical and cultural interest in West Flanders (Kortrijk, Bruges, Ypres, the seaside…)
Each year several International Staff Training Weeks are organized by our institution. Since we host several Staff Weeks, we usually do not accept any individual visits.
