The Arqus Lounge is now up and running!

On The May 18, 2021

In April 2021 the Arqus Lounge held its first meeting, an opportunity for Arqus staff to get to know colleagues from other partner universities and to talk about current topics, their daily work, issues or common interests.

Following this introductory meeting, the Université de Lyon invites all Arqus partners to the upcoming discussions, to share best practices on the following themes:

  • Out-going mobility (led by Université Jean Monnet - Evelyne Lefèvre, Aurélie Brayet, Julien Strignano, Florence Courtade)
  • Incoming mobility - welcoming and supporting international students (led by Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 – International Office team)

The first discussion on out-going mobility will take place on May 18 from 10:30 to 12:00 CEST. The main focus will be students' mobility, but the discussions may also include staff and academic mobility. Each discussion will enable participants to present and discuss various aspects related to out-going mobility, such as:

  • How universities promote languages and international mobility
  • How they prepare their students before their mobility
  • How they keep in touch and manage them during their mobility
  • What happens after the mobility: to what extent are students’ skills acknowledged and their experience promoted after the mobility, etc.

The first discussion will aim at sharing best practices before, during and after the mobility. It will also identify key aspects that partners are struggling with and areas that they are willing to explore together during the following discussions to be held in June and during the autumn semester.
