The IEI team is currently serving with their expertise to:
- University of Hradec Králové

At the University of Hradec Králové, we have designed and are delivering 2 one-year long trainings on Intercultural Communication to Academics and International officers.
- Training for academics focuses on important aspects of international classroom, including the development of intercultural skills, work with diversified groups of students, and updating course syllabi to include international, intercultural and/or global learning objectives, diverse and inclusive pedagogies and assessment methods.
- Training for international officers aims at developing specific intercultural knowledge, attitudes and skills important for working with international students, including effective and culturally sensitive communication, support for students before, during and after their cultural transition and collaboration with other institutional stakeholders to support internationalization at home.
