Study Tours for Academics and Mobility Professionals
STAMP (Study Tour for Academics and Mobility Professionals) is a professional development opportunity aimed at building the skills of Australian university academic and professional staff that work with global mobility programs. STAMP 2019 will be undertaken in India, providing participants with an international travel experience; a chance to better understand the global student experience - including partner collaboration; local logistics; risk and safety; cultural engagement; and working in Asia and emerging economies. STAMP is an interactive and peer-led program, with expertise being shared by participants.
STAMP will provide an opportunity to meet with community hosts to understand their requirements and the impact of hosting students; and understand safety, risks, and logistical considerations for developing immersive education programs. The immersive nature of this trip aims to build a strong community among Australian student mobility professionals, build strong personal connections and share practice to support the design and development of global mobility programs.
Themes + Learning Outcomes
During this program, participants will join a range of cultural and educational experiences and interactive Masterclass workshops led by local partners, content experts, and experienced mobility professionals. These opportunities are designed to provide experience and knowledge of: • Designing immersive, innovative, and practical international experiences; • Key safety and risk concerns for global mobility programs, and effective risk management; • The logistics and coordination of global mobility programs • Potential program partners and their perspectives as local partners coordinating global mobility programs through workshops and networking opportunities; • Community building and the chance to create a shared language and understanding of global mobility, experiential education, and project-based learning; • Innovative and new approaches to international education and student mobility; • Open Dialogues – a chance for all participants to share their own organisational approaches and present their best practice, troubleshoot challenges, and gain a toolkit to support their work.
