IT Sligo is a vibrant third level institution on the North West coast of Ireland for both Irish and international students, with more than 6,000 students. International students make up 8% of the student population of 36 nationalities.
Visiting lecturers from partner institutions on a Teaching Mobility visit are very important and add greatly to the institute’s international profile and quality of education.
Our colleagues from the Schools of Business & Social Sciences, Engineering & Design and Science are very happy to discuss our wide range of programmes and specifically exchange teaching knowledge, new teaching methods and experiences.
Our students benefit from internationalisation at home by listening and discussing views outside their regular schedules.
For all visiting teachers your first point of contact is the IT Sligo International Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are delighted to welcome you to IT Sligo.
Welcome note to staff considering an outgoing Erasmus+ trip
You may already be familiar with the Erasmus+ Programme, which brings a number of European students to IT Sligo every year, while our own students travel to partner colleges abroad for study or work placements.
An Erasmus+ Teaching Mobility trip, similarly, offers staff (academic and non-academic) the chance to travel to one of our partners in Europe. Partner colleges are located in Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Czech Republic among others. There are a great many benefits to be had on both a personal and professional level.
Visiting a partner institution on an Outward Teaching Mobility assignment adds greatly to the institute’s international profile and quality of education. Partner colleagues are very happy to discuss teaching knowledge and experiences, new teaching methods and programme content.
Teachers have an opportunity to teach in a partner institution for a minimum of 5 hours. Outward Teaching Mobility assignments also provide our lecturers with an excellent opportunity to visit our outgoing students in their adopted learning environment.
As every student cannot take part in the Erasmus+ programme, our students at home benefit from internationalisation by learning from teachers who have taken part in an Outward Teaching Mobility assignment.
