Actual

It is our pleasure to announce a successful realization of the mobility project "Czech-Norwegian Mobility Partnership". In the period from 26.10. 2014 to 25.10.2015 mobility of 12 participants was realized, 4 of them were students going for one semester to Hedmark University College, Faculty of Business Administration and 8 of them were teachers (3 teachers came to Mendelu in Brno, FBE and 5 teachers went to Hedmark University College). Within this project new professional relationships were established and the cooperation with project partner deepened. Despite the fact that the project ends the cooperation with Faculty of Business Administration will continue in the approved project of institutional cooperation from Norway grants - "Institutional cooperation in Sustainable and Responsible Education". This project is focused on research and benchmarking in responsible and sustainable education. Herby we would like to thank all participants and the partner for cooperation, Mendel University in Brno for support and most of all Norway grants for the financial support that enabled the project realization.

Czech-Norwegian Mobility Partnership

Grant was provided by Norway grants. Programme: CZ07 - Scholarship Programme and Bilateral Scholarship Programme

Project duration is one year enabling mobility in winter or spring semester 2014/2015.

Project objectives

The objective of this project is to sustain and strengthen the relationship of the Faculty of Business and Economics, Mendel University in Brno (Mendelu) and the Faculty of Business Administration, Hedmark University College (HUC). The attainment of this objective will be based on the mobility of students and teachers, on their knowledge and experiences they could share with the partner institution. The mobility will be targeted primarily on the students from both institutions. They will come for one semester to study at the partner's institution. They will be able to compare the subjects taught at both of selected partner institutions, see different approaches and methods of teaching, they will study new subjects that are not included in the programme of their home faculty. It will lead to improvement of their language skills and increased competitiveness in the national and international labour market. The secondary target group are the teachers that will come for one week to teach at the partner institution. The teachers will share their expertise in teaching methods of a certain subject. They will gain new knowledge in this area and find new perspective and way of solution. They will improve their pedagogical skills and develop academic contacts. The students and teachers will be selected according to the criteria agreed by both partner institutions. The selection process will be done according to the rules set in the project documentation with respect of all rights of the participants and no discrimination, including the equality of women and men.
