Academic Practice Workshops 2016-2017

The training component of the MW Programme consists in three interlocking modules designed to address key areas of academic practice: 

  • Teaching 
  • Publishing and Presenting Research
  • Preparation for the Job Market and Career Development 

The cornerstone of the interlocking modules are the  Academic Practice Workshops . These Workshops are designed to enhance Fellows’ knowledge and skills in key areas of academic practice, from publishing strategies and research dissemination, to research ethics and professional leadership, to effective teaching and curriculum development in the context of today’s multicultural global academia.

The workshops are offered by experts from the EUI and its sister institutions and can also be convened directly by the Academic Practice Groups on topics related to academic practice of particular interest. The workshops are usually held on Wednesday mornings and are open to all Fellows.
