Internationalization of Teacher Education Issues Discussed in Dresden

International 8 December 2017
The University of Tyumen continues to develop cooperation in the sphere of pedagogics and inclusive education with Technical University of Dresden (Germany).

In fact, pedagogics is one of the frontiers of TU Dresden, despite its name. Its faculty of education has a wealth of research and academic institutes and centres and prepares teachers for the Primary and General Secondary education system.

At the end of November, Dresden hosted the Internationalization of Teacher Education international conference. Zhanna Bruk, assistant professor of the Department of Children Psychology and Pedagogy, and Tatyana Novopashina, student of the Pedagogical Education masters programme, took part in the conference.
Zhanna Bruk took part in a syllabus poster session with other lecturers from Russia and Germany, sharing ideas on developing skills in planning and conducting lessons. Tatyana Novopashina proposed how to plan lessons for Tyumen schools.

Then, as part of a panel discussion, conference attendees reviewed issues in and ways of optimising the internationalisation of pedagogic education, opportunities for students to study abroad and matters concerning university associates networking. They also touched upon Russian and German experiences in the internationalization of teacher education and attended classes in one of Dresden’s gymnasiums.

“Such remarkable international events enable us to interpret and summarise our own experience in training future teachers as well as learn about effective global practices and integrate them into our work,” notes Zhanna Bruk, assistant professor of Institute of Psychology and Pedagogical Sciences.

It should be noted that students and professors' participation in international conferences, forums, seminars, and internships has been made possible as a result of UTMN’s development strategy for academic mobility, which was set in motion as part of the 5-100 Project.
