Erasmus+ staff exchange

The University of Groningen Language Centre regularly receives requests from lecturers about the possibilities of visiting us for a week, via the Erasmus+ programme, to observe our teaching and get to know the Language Centre. We have therefore hosted an Erasmus+ staff exchange week in September 2019 where we welcomed visitors from Germany, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Italy and Israel.

The week included visits to language and academic writing classes, extensive dialogues with counterparts - whether the Translation Centre, or the section head, a session on the MOOC/online language learning and a session on Intercultural Competence, and strategic exchange about management and marketing.

Our guests found the week “intensive, rewarding, interesting, inspiring and exhausting!”

Week 2019

Although we are unsure when we can host an Erasmus + staff exchange week again due to the corona virus, we would love to hear from you in case you have any questions or if you are interested. You can contact the Language Centre via: languagecentre

We are looking forward to meeting you in Groningen.
