International Partnerships is delighted to be hosting an ‘International Partners Week’ from 27 – 31 March 2017. Key staff at our partner universities across the world have been invited to attend the event, which will provide an invaluable opportunity to network, develop relationships and foster debate across a wide range of topics.
The University of Kent is committed to driving forward a range of global partnership activity. This event is one of a growing number of activities undertaken by the new International Partnerships Directorate to raise the University’s profile internationally through deeper interaction with overseas partners.
The theme of the week is ‘Managing international communications in an increasingly interconnected world’ and the programme will focus on the following:
- Working with international press/media
- Crisis management; how does your institution approach international incidents?
- Intercultural communication workshop
- Managing the perception and response to students’ behaviour
- Using Social Media
International Partnerships and Corporate Communications will work together in delivering the workshops. Staff from partner institutions will also be given the opportunity to deliver their own sessions and share good practice.
