HOGENT University of Applied Sciences and Arts is delighted to invite you and your colleagues to the HOGENT International Week, held from 23 till 26 March 2020 in Ghent (Belgium). This edition’s central theme is ‘Global engagement: working towards meaningful collaborations all over the world’. Beside general keynotes and topics on global engagement and collaboration, there will be some guest lecturers on social work topics like human rights and professional ethics. Please feel free to share this event with your colleagues or through your communication channels.
The general program has been fine-tuned. Have a look at the sessions we’ve lined up and the social activities that are planned on our website: https://www.hogent.be/en/international-week/
As you will notice, the program is divided in four tracks:
– Global Engagement @ HOGENT:Workshops and presentations about the International Week’s central theme: Global engagement
– Share your expertise @ HOGENT: Workshops and presentations by experts for other experts. In other words: peer-to-peer sessions to share knowledge and expertise
– Engage with students or colleagues @ HOGENT: Guest lectures and meetings amongst experts and participants individually. Guest lectures can be agreed between the participant and the coordinator of internationalization of each study programme. Requests for meetings with participants and experts can be done on the registration form and will be organized by the International Office of HOGENT.
