Staff Exchange Agreement
At the iConference in Wuhan, China, the representatives of the European iSchools agreed to work on a staff exchange agreement, which would allow iSchool faculty and staff to visit other iSchools in order to foster the exchange of research and teaching ideas, processes and strategies. At the iConference in Sheffield, UK (March 2018), the staff exchange agreement was agreed upon.
Staff exchanges will support the long-term objective of the iSchools to work more closely together, enter into more research collaborations to support and strengthen the iSchool movement and to move towards a more harmonized teaching structure and organization in Europe.
The iSchool Europe staff exchange initiative resembles the EC-supported Erasmus programme, but requires less administrative overhead because it is based on bilateral agreements between participating iSchools. Participation is voluntary and is based on bilateral agreements between staff exchanging iSchools.
