Erasmus Teacher Mobility

Erasmus teacher mobility is a great opportunity for deepening pedagogical and research cooperation. Our teacher Pedja Ašanin Gole stayed at the University of Stirling (Scotland).

In the context of the Erasmus+ programme for the mobility of higher education teachers, DOBA Business School Teacher Pedja Ašanin Gole stayed at the University of Stirling (Scotland) as a visiting lecturer. University of Stirling is ranked among the top 150 European (The Europe University Rank 2017) and Top 350 world universities (The World University Rank 2017). It is a public university that is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Every year, an average of almost 13,000 students from 120 countries study there with every fifth lecturer from its almost 800 lecturers coming from abroad. The university, with its five academic faculties, a campus, modern library, sports facilities, shops, an own theatre and a lake, stretches over an area of more than 130 hectares.

“Visiting such a prestigious university is undoubtedly a challenge for every public relations teacher, as the University of Stirling is considered one of the first European universities that started implementing public relations studies, which are offered in the context of four postgraduate programmes, including one online programme. This university is also considered the home of the so-called school of critical public relations, which was established by the former lecturers Jacquie L’Etang and Magda Pieczka. I am very happy that DOBA Business School offered me this experience and already in the next academic year, we can expect in-depth cooperation in the pedagogical and research field,” said Ašanin Gole upon completing his staff mobility programme.

In the context of Erasmus staff mobility, Ašanin Gole arranged a cooperation with Stirling University lecturers and researchers in the context of virtual mobility of students in the Strategic Public Relations Planning course and joint research work on the effects of country brand in independence movements in Slovenia, Scotland and Catalonia, which will be presented at a scientific symposium of DOBA Business School scheduled for next year.
