Improve your teaching methods for joint programmes

The Unite! Competencies for Collaborative Teaching in Joint Programmes is a dynamic programme aimed at university teachers to help them develop and implement innovative teaching methods for international joint programmes.  

This blended intensive programme focuses on the integration of technology tools, collaborative strategies, and interdisciplinary approaches, highlighting the role of creativity and critical thinking.  

The curriculum emphasizes the link between global competence and diverse teaching contexts, both face-to-face and online. Participants will learn to harness the unique benefits of multilingual and multicultural classrooms, to design teamwork for enhanced learning, and to see joint programmes as opportunities for authentic learning through business and academic collaboration. Upon completion, educators will be able to create enriched intercultural and interdisciplinary learning experiences for their learners.​​  

The programme runs from June to August 2024 and combines on-line modules with a full week on-site module in Stockholm in August.

Research and Innovation Services

A joint network of Integrated Research and Innovation Services, through which common lines will be established for the future development of the alliance in the field of research and towards future support for the application to EU funding.

Through the regular interaction of the Grants Offices, Technology Transfer Offices, HR and Open Science Offices of each partner university, a set of services have been identified to promote international collaboration opportunities. This constitutes the first seed of institutional transformation in the management of the alliance as it will also include the training of professional profiles to promote Unite! services and the design of R&I services.
