The project is actually titles "Invisible, 'other than', neccessary. University administration towards academic excellence". The first part of the title might not make sense for an English speaker. The 'other than' refres to how HEI administration is referred to - namely, as HEI staff other than academics (pl. niebędący nauczycielami akademickimi). Thus, there are two categories of staff at HEI: academics and other than academics.
- a scientific one, which should provide konwledge on the roles of administrative staff at HEIs
- a traning one, which will transfer the knowledge into practice by provideing administrative staff with new skills and knowledge
The project is headed by Anna Mielczarek-Taica
, who is the head of the Dean's Office at the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences at the Nicolaus Copernicus Univeristy in Toruń.
The team at SGH Warsaw School of Economics is responsible for task 8: Study visits / job shadowing
The aim of this taks is to raise both knowledge and skills of administrative staff (middle and upper level) at Polish HEI. The study visits will be organised in a similar manner to Staff Mobility Erasmus+. However, while Erasmus+ is meant internationally, our study visits will promote mobility within Poland - to a HEI located in another administrative district. During these visits the participants will be able to get to know the administrative unit, and wider HEI, learn how the work is organised and how the organisational culture looks like. Each participant will be asked to prepare a written report from the visit and participate in an anonymous survey online. There are going to be 40 participants - 2 calls x 20 participants. The details will be published on the Polish version of the website by early 2020.
