CHEI Research Seminar

Our Autumn 2021 Research Seminar will take place in Milan, 13-17 September. We are all so looking forward to the possibility of meeting up in person after such a long period of online contact, however productive our cohort has been during the pandemic. Enrolment is open via our Seminar webpage.

Our Spring 2021 Research Seminar concluded on 10 June with a final session of a rich programme of online sessions running from March to June. Our international academic community is growing and in action despite the restrictions we are all working under right now.

Our hand was forced in 2020 and our two Research Seminars took place online to our participants. We provided dedicated support over the year, working remotely via regular seminars and meetings to ensure that our cohort were able to keep on track with their research. We thank our Academic Team and all the students for making the two 2020 programmes so successful. 

Our Research Seminar is held twice a year and is open to a broad international community of students and scholars with an interest in the internationalisation of higher education.


Teaching international classes

Our June schedule for modules on teaching international classes is now online and enrolment is open. The workshops for this iteration will be delivered via Teams but we will be returning to in-person sessions with online options as soon as this is feasible.

We provide support to academic staff at all of the Università Cattolica campuses: Milan, Piacenza, Brescia and Rome. Not only do we offer a forum for professors and instructors to discuss experience and exchange ideas, our educational developers lead sessions which give insight into approaches, strategies and techniques to use. The modules we offer are delivered as workshops so that participants can take advantage of the opportunity to put into practice the material that is covered.

We publish new dates for all our modules throughout the year. 

The support to academic staff comes within the Centre's mission to support Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in its strategy of internatonalisation and we are grateful to the University for funding these modules. Università Cattolica academic staff can take part free of charge. We also welcome participants from other universities, who should contact us directly.
