Every year lecturers from different institutions in The Netherlands, Flanders and South Africa are exchanged. They visit companies where students are working on their education. They meet colleagues, politicians and officials. Often they travel around to see the country. This way they learn to know the country and the area they sent their students to.
The other option is a programme in which lecturers from other countries exchange and lecture in each others country. This happens for a period of one month up to about one year. This way not only lecturers are exchanged but also new teaching methods, ideas and knowledge are developed, generated and enhanced. It is a growth opportunity for all parties.
