The International Chair - Concept and Benefits of a New Interdisciplinary Faculty Position

  • In this contribution we present the concept for creating an “International Chair” position at a German University of Applied Sciences and our experiences in its first implementation. Our primary goal was to increase the diversity of the university’s teaching personalities and enrich student education by including content, methods, examples and experiences from other cultures. This gives students an international and intercultural learning experience that is otherwise only acquired through studying abroad. We conclude that the International Chair is a valuable and powerful university tool for increasing international exposure to the departments, their staff and students.
