KP Virtual International Week 2021
The global classroom – engaging with the world
Due to Covid-19 the annual KP International Week is going virtual. Therefore, University College Copenhagen (KP) invites lecturers across borders and educational fields to join us for our first Virtual International Week taking place in 2021 from March 22 to March 24.
KP international week 2021 will thematize The Global Classroom by asking how to facilitate virtual learning environments that enables students to engage with the world and provide key global competences. Covid-19 has challenged international collaboration, but the pandemic has also forced us to interact in new digital ways. We therefore invite you to take part in important discussions on how to strengthen global and intercultural learning opportunities virtually.
Join us in our effort to create a global classroom through
- online guest lecturers
- collaborative online international learning exchanges between your students and KP students
- staff webinars focusing on international exchange of knowledge and collaboration
- and a one-day online virtual educational fair where you are given the opportunity to present your institution for KP students and staff.
In the registration you can indicate which of the days and activities you wish to participate in.
