The ECPR-TLP is a consortium member in the 2019-2022 Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project IMPACT.The project IMPACT – Improving Academic Teaching and Internationalisation through Enhanced Competences of University Teachers, is a 3-year Erasmus+ Strategic partnership that aims to improve internationalisation through enhancing competences of university teachers. This includes designing and piloting a course that prepares teachers to effectively teach international students and mixed groups of home and international students. Moreover, it involves preparing and testing another course to improve teachers’ academic writing skills and to design a range of writing tasks for their students. 

The project will also develop a web portal with freely accessible teaching and learning resources that address the issues of student diversity, internationalisation and peer learning.

The IMPACT project is implemented by an international team of collaborators from Comenius University in Bratislava, Masaryk University, Central European University, Technical University in Delft and the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR). 

Associated project partners are the European University Association and the International Consortium for Educational Development.
