ERASMUS Staff Mobility – Teaching Assignments by HEI Teaching Staff and by Invited Staff from Enterprises

This action enables staff to spend a teaching period between 1 day – or at least 5 teaching hours- and 6 weeks at a higher education institution in another participating country. A minimum duration of 5 working days is strongly recommended.
The objectives of this staff mobility for teaching are:
• To encourage higher education institutions to broaden and enrich the range and content of
courses they offer;
• To allow students who do not have the possibility to participate in a mobility scheme, to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of academic staff from higher education
institutions and from invited staff of enterprises in other European countries;
• To promote exchange of expertise and experience on pedagogical methods;
• To create links between higher education institutions and with enterprises;
• To motivate students and staff to become mobile and to assist them in preparing a mobility period.The teaching assignments may be carried out by teaching staff of higher education institutions and by invited staff of enterprises. In all cases, the activities of staff undertaking a teaching assignment should be integrated into the curricula of the host institution.
The partner higher education institutions/enterprise must have agreed on the program of the activities to be undertaken by the visiting teachers (teaching program) prior to the start of the mobility period. When the person carrying out the assignment is from a higher education institution, the assignment must be based on an inter-institutional agreement between the home and host institution.
Teaching staff of higher education institutions are selected by the sending institution, staff of enterprises by the host institution.
In the case of staff mobility from an enterprise to a higher education institution, the mobility is arranged by an invitation of the higher education institution to the staff member of the
enterprise. The grant is always managed by the higher education institution. Staff members with special needs may apply for a specific grant after they had been selected for
a mobility period.The minimum requirement for a teaching assignment is 5 teaching hours. A minimum duration of 5 working days is strongly recommended to provide a meaningful
contribution to the teaching program and international life at the host institution.The teaching assignment must be carried out in a higher education institution holding an
Erasmus University Charter.

institution and the enterprise concerned.

their size, legal status or the economic sector in which they operate, including the social economy”. The definition of ‘enterprise’ implies that further to companies, HEIs, research
centers, the self-employed, family firms, partnerships and associations regularly engaged in an economic activity may be considered as enterprises. It is the economic activity that is the
determining factor, not the legal form.
