The Office of International Relations (SINTER) addresses UFSC faculty and technical-administrative staff for a consultation aimed at mapping the internationalization activities/actions in progress at the University and understanding the internationalization needs/demands of faculty, technical-administrative staff, and academic and administrative units.
The participation of the university community will help SINTER obtain a broader overview of the ongoing internationalization actions and develop its strategies aligned to UFSC needs and in accordance with the goals set out in the 2020-2024 Institutional Development Plan (PDI).
For specific purposes of this research, internationalization is understood as a broad set of interactions between individuals, networks and institutions, which take place at an international level. There are several possibilities for internationalization initiatives in higher education, such as: international academic and professional mobility; joint teaching, research and outreach projects and activities; double-degree programs; co-supervision agreements; courses taught in foreign languages; Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) courses; virtual exchange; academic supervision of international students; involvement with public institutions and international organizations of various natures; organization of international events; joint publications with international researchers; among others.
The form is structured into four sections:
- Participant’s general information;
- Internationalization activities/actions already undertaken;
- Ongoing internationalization activities/actions;
- Internationalization needs/demands.
The consultation period goes until 15 December 2022.
