Like the first NICE Academy in Krakow this year, we plan to offer a good number of training workshops and theory seminars, a poster exhibition, and numerous activities for collaboration and networking in Split - in addition to inspiring keynote lectures and master classes.



1. Theme of the Academy


Under the theme "Innovative Approaches to Career Guidance and Counselling", we would also like to invite first offers/proposals for master classes and workshops.


Over the past years, many new approaches to career support have been developed across the world - many of them drawing on state-of-the-art theory and the latest results of empirical investigations into career development, career-related challenges, learning, the benefits of new technologies, etc. At our second NICE Academy, we would like to create a space for you to


  • share new approaches, methods and tools for the careers practice,
  • introduce new approaches to practitioner training,
  • engage in developing and testing ideas for innovative approaches,
  • present and discuss empirical findings on innovative approaches, and
  • develop your knowledge and criticality of relevant innovations.



2. First Call for Contributions (Master Classes & Training Workshops)


For now, we would like to launch a first call for master classes and training workshops:


  • Master classes are highly interactive learning opportunities, which participants prepare for in advance, e.g., by reading some materials. We offer two sessions of 90 minutes for master classes (180 minutes). Depending on the quality of the proposals, we will include 1-2 master classes in the program of the NICE Academy in Split.
  • Training workshops are, also, highly interactive learning opportunities of 90 minutes each (but with no preparation needed for participants). No more than 30 minutes are spent with presentations. Activities can comprise group discussions, individual/group exercises, collegial counselling, peer learning, etc.


We welcome proposals until November 30, 2018. Your short abstract of 150-300 words should include (1) a preliminary title of your master class / training workshop, (2) a short description of learning goals/outcomes and topic/contents, (3) a short desciption of the interactive method(s) that you will be using, (4) references to relevant literature, particularly the theoretical and empirical foundation.


We welcome workshop offers in English, French, German, and languages from the region: Croatian, Bosniak, Serbian and Montenegrin. 



3. Next Steps


Further calls will follow, especially for theory seminars and posters.


Mobility funding: So that you can apply for Erasmus+ mobility funding (higher education OR adult education) on time, we will also prepare adequate materials soon and keep you informed about the relevant opportunties. For registration, payment etc., we will also be using an established online system this year, which has already been used for more than 700 international events.
