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…)
You are of course welcome as an individual lecturer but we would also like you to come during our International Staff Weeks, held annually in some of our departments. This way you meet a large group of international colleagues and you can do some networking based on the wealth of knowledge and experience of often more than 25 colleagues from all over the world. Looking forward to welcoming you at VIVES.

International Education Week at VIVES Education (IEW)
During our International Education Week (IEW), which is held every year early spring, we want to share the international expertise on our seven 21st century competences. During this week the students of our teacher training college will follow your course, your workshop, your activity.
You will also be able to meet our VIVES colleagues from education and teacher training in campus Bruges, Kortrijk and Torhout. You can connect and share expertise, innovating ideas and good practices. You are more than welcome to join this international week.
