Higher education institutions around the world continue to internationalize and the number of English-taught programs (ETPs) is growing rapidly. Providing appropriate training and support for ETP students, staff, and faculty is crucial to ensuring the quality of the programs. This professional development course is for faculty and staff who wish to learn more about ETP design and implementation. Topics include ETP curriculum and course design, language-conscious practices, academic and social integration, and ETP management.

In addition to seminars, workshops, and lectures, participants will take part in informal fika sessions with Swedish and international colleagues.
