KOR-EU Leaders for Global Education
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,
The EU consortium for the KE-LeGE, Leaders for Global Education, project consists of four universities: Central Ostrobothnia University of Applied Sciences and University of Oulu (Finland), University of Innsbruck (Austria), and University of Tallinn (Estonia). Three universities form the Korean consortium: Chungbuk National University, Sunchon National University and Korea University. Major activities for this three year project are: (1) exchange of 40 undergraduate students with focus on pedagogy from each consortium, (2) mobility program for 24 EU faculty members and 9 members, and (3) development of courses for global education. Korean students will spend 5 months at hosting institutes taking courses in global education, English, and the local language as part of cultural learning, and teaching practice at local schools. EU students will have a similar 4-month experience supported by local universities and communities. Students will be supported by cultural and linguistic education, and student services including housing, coaching, and social integration. The long term goal is that the experience of developing and implementing global education courses together can lead to dual degree programs in the future.
