What is the goal of the training program?

The main purpose of the Erasmus+ STT week on Communication Skills for the Academic Community is to provide participants with the know-how needed to communicate effectively at the university. The training will focus on understanding the academic culture and the way it impacts the communication processes. Diplomacy and professionalism is key for achieving effective communication, together building the foundation of positive working relationships. Participants will interact in a dynamic scenery, designed to foster dialogue and debate, being constantly challenged through tasks and case studies consisting of hypothetical scenarios.


Whom does it address?

Participants to the training should be members of the academic community with an English level of B1 or above, looking to develop and/or improve their communication knowledge and skills: teaching staff, administrative staff, PhD candidates or researchers etc.


How is the program structured?

The training program will take place in the lovely city of Timisoara, Romania. Timisoara is also known as little Vienna because of its habsburgic look and traces of the Austrian Empire. Timisoara was elected European Capital of Culture for 2021 because of its beauty, rich cultural life and peaceful blend of ethnic minorities. The training program will be divided into presentations and workshops combined with one-to-one coaching sessions. With a total duration of 25 hours, the classes will take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. After completion, all participants will be awarded Erasmus+ Staff Mobility (STT) certificates. The training includes also a cultural component with the possibility to visit the Romanian village museum, a walking city tour and a traditional Romanian dinner.
