The Erasmus+ mobility enabled me to visit the University of Education in Freiburg im Breisgau (www.ph-freiburg.de) in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany between the 25th and the 29th October 2018.
The University of Education Freiburg is a higher education institution with a university status. It has the unconditional right to award the doctoral and habilitation degrees. In addition to continuing education courses for teachers, school management and other people working in the school environment, a wide range of Bachelor, Master and teacher training programmes is offered.
The stay focussed on the pedagogical-practical studies in teacher training. Practical training at schools is a crucial part of the teacher training. Dr. Jutta Nikel (Managing Director of the Centre for Practical School Studies) and Päd.In Christine Menzer (Academic Assistant at the Centre for Practical School Studies) offered an insight into its arrangement and a deeper exchange of experience. The cooperation between students and lecturers in the classes of school practice offered a variety of opportunities for an intensive exchange of content. Mr Johannes Lebfromm (Department for International Affairs) warmly welcomed me and looked after me.
