Welcome Message from the Vice Rector

Dear guests,
 
Why internationalization? Why are we so keen to internationalize our universities and to increase their internationality? What are the theoretical motives driving us and how does this actually look like in practice? In our two-day conference on October 5 and 6, 2020, we have explored the subject of internationalization from an academic, theoretical perspective and have contrasted that with real-world experience, by listening to the findings of distinguished researchers on internationalization and then, on the second day, hearing from the directors of international offices and vice rectors of our partner universities around the world report on their actual experience. With guests present at the conference as well as participants zoomed in from all over the world, we hence experienced, how internationalization and internationality can be practiced in our times of social distancing and travel restrictions. 
 
We had two very fruitful days with lively discussions and interesting new ideas about the case of the internationalization of higher education. Now, we are happy to share the recordings of the presentations with you and allow you to reflect on this very important topic of our time.
 
Best regards,
Stephan Conermann, Vice Rector for International Affairs
