International Week, Pori Finland, March 7-11, 2016

Future learning is often understood as 21st century skills like social skills, digital skills, responsibility and cultural awareness. Is it more? Our international week explores the theme of Future learning from various viewpoints. The International Week offers an excellent possibility to share experiences and best practices with colleagues from partner universities and institutions.

The event is jointly organized by Satakunta University of Applied Sciences and the University Consortium of Pori.

The International week brings together teaching and non-teaching staff from SAMK, UCPori and partner institutions. The event offers thus possibility to ERASMUS Staff week and ERASMUS teaching week. Moreover, it is directed to all colleagues who are working with internationalization at their home universities, for example exchange programs, mobility, university cooperation, student advising and e-learning technologies.

The programme takes place at the individual campuses of the host institutions in the city of Pori. Participants thus have the chance to get to know the different types and features of Finnish higher education strands.

We warmly welcome colleagues and representatives of our partner universities worldwide to participate in International Week in Pori on March 2016!
