Welcome to Eye on TAMK 2021 Online Week
For many years, TAMK’s International Weeks have built a global platform for peer support, idea exchange and networking. Participants have been able to present and share their expertise with their international peers from different higher educational institutions.
This year, TAMK International Services join forces with the Schools to organize a multidisciplinary International Week for everyone. The participants will be able to explore new topics and cooperation possibilities or deepen their knowledge on their field by exchanging ideas and practices with international partners.
“We welcome everyone to make new connections and revive old ones,” exclaims Krista Merikoski, Coordinator in TAMK International Services.
A multidisciplinary week-long event
Eye on TAMK 2021 Online Week is a scientific, pedagogical, and intercultural event.
The programme will include lectures, workshops, seminars, and interactive sessions fitting the following topics: Business, Cultural Wellbeing, Engineering, Languages and Communication, Health Care and Social Services, Media, Music and Arts, RDI, Teacher Education, TREE- Continuous Education, and Quality goes online in university services (Non-Teaching Staff Track).
All TAMK members and partners are invited to submit their proposal to attend the event as presenters; by teaching a lecture, hosting a session, etc. Send in your application by 22 February 2021.
"This year, TAMK lecturers and students' expertise can be highlighted. For example, in the field of engineering the joint projects with our international partners will be showcased," comments Riku-Matti Kinnunen, International Coordinator for Engineering and in charge of the Academic Tracks in Eye on TAMK 2021.
This year’s joined International Week will better enable multidisciplinary activities and the participants will find interesting and new, perhaps even unexpected, opportunities.
International Week goes Online
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event will be held online on 22-26 of March 2021. The virtual nature of this event creates new opportunities to network and internationalize at home. Participants will be able to exchange ideas and learn with peers from around the world from the comfort of our own home offices.
“We are trying to make virtual networking as easy as possible by setting up virtual lounges, and by making the sessions interactive. New international partnerships will be formed during the Eye on TAMK 2021 thanks to pre-scheduled meetings,” says the organizing team.
The cultural and social programme is organized by the experienced TAMK-Virtual Event Service (TAMK-VES). It will introduce the Tampere region and the local culture to the participants and intrigue them to visit and explore Tampere soon.
