Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Oamk, 1-5 April 2019

(+ optional one night Post ITSEW Tour, 5-6 April 2019)



AT THE MOMENT: We thank everyone for a great week!

Stay for a week, remember for a lifetime.


ITSEW 2020?
Due to relocation of all our campuses during next year we unfortunately will not be able to arrange the ITSEW in 2020. 

Nevertheless, you are of course welcome to propose and agree on an individual teacher or staff exchange with our respective department or service unit.

 You can send your proposal to the International Services at email and we will deliver it to the appropriate department(s) and/or service unit(s) for consideration. For faster processing, please mention the topics, contents, target department(s) (if known) and wished timetable of your visit in your message.


For teachers the week offers teaching possibilities in business, engineering, ICT, health and social care, education, natural resources, media and performing arts. Also teachers of general subjects such as languages, maths, physics etc. are welcomed.

In addition to one's own teaching, we welcome everyone to visit the lectures of other colleagues in order to get the most out of the week.

For further information of all the lectures available, please see the week's full teaching programme the guest teachers (constantly updated, also possible changes included).

Staff members have the opportunity to benchmark and exchange ideas with the colleagues in various support services of higher education: International, IT, student, library, as well as research and development services.

Each service has designed a specific track/programme for their guests. The staff track programmes are now published on staff page.


The main purpose of the week is to share ideas, find new networks and also to get a taste of local culture.There are different meeting and greeting opportunities organised during the week that are open for all the guests irrespective of the topic or track. View the whole week's programme at a glance.

To support networking, the ITSEW Network Noticeboard is for your use until 30 April. If you are looking for new partners in international cooperation, feel free to use the noticeboard. On this noticeboard you may leave a message for all ITSEW participants, both guests and Oamk’s hosts. In addition, you may browse through the messages that other participants have left. The Noticeboard is accessible via the link on the right upper corner of this page. The username and password for the board is given in the welcome session and by email sent to the participants prior to the week.

In order for everything to run smoothly we also invite you to read our guest guide with all the practical information for the week.

We look forward to a great ITSEW 2019 - let's make the most out of it together.
