Organisation of the faculty’s work with internationalisation

Action plan

The action plan (in Swedish) for internationalisation sets the goals for the faculty’s internationalisation activities throughout 2018. The action plan is based on the university’s as well as the faculty’s common goals and concretises how internationalisation may contribute to placing the student’s learning at the centre, increasing the research volume, and achieving complete academic environments. During the first part of the three-year period, strategic contractual work, routines, and information will be prioritised. In the longer term, the focus will be on the internationalisation perspective in programme syllabi as well as coherent English-language semesters.

Senior advisor / strategic advisor

The Faculty of Librarianship, Information, Education and IT has a senior advisor on internationalisation whose focus is to coordinate and work strategically and advisory when it comes to the departments’ and the faculty’s internationalisation activities. Feel free to discuss potential international project with Veronica Trépagny. The three faculty-level coordinators for internationalisation all work closely together with the university’s central coordinator for internationalisation in overall issues. The international coordinators are part of the support and form an international office. 

The group for internationalisation and internationalisation back home

In order to further broaden, prepare, and deepen the internationalisation efforts, the faculty’s advisory council has decided to form a group for internationalisation and internationalisation back home: GFI A3. The group consists of representatives from all departments and activities of the faculty and meets two to three times per semester. The convenor is the faculty’s coordinator for internationalisation. Feel free to speak to representatives of the GFI group or the international coordinators about potential new partner universities.  

GFI A3 consists of:

Elena Maceviciute

International coordinators

In order to support the internationalisation activities even further, both in terms of supporting students and staff as well as development work, there are two international coordinators from the faculty support office who work for the faculty. They divide tasks according to processes and portfolios, and besides supporting the faculty they are part of groups that work with overall issues at the university level. The two international coordinators are also helpful when developing new partnerships.

  • Sofia Tsivos supports students and staff in terms of incoming in LIS and Informatics
  • Linda Harju, supports students and staff in terms of incoming in pedagogy, teacher edcuation
  • Helena Gjertz supports students and staff in terms of outgoing in LIS, Informatics and pedagogy, teacher education

The university’s international forum (HIF)

Every two weeks, all international coordinators at the university, regardless of level and organisational affiliation, meet for a dialogue, overview and joint work. Depending on the agenda, other people who work with internationalisation may be invited based on different aspects – admission, Ladok, communication, etc.
