Lecture on European Trends in Teacher Education


On 28 March 2018, our ESR Vasilis Symeonidis was invited to give a lecture for MA in Educational Sciences students at the Department of Education, University of Western Macedonia (UOWM) in Greece. The lecture dealt with the topic ‘European trends in teacher education: The cases of Austria and Hungary’ and was attended by 25 teacher education students. The students were introduced to main theories regarding European integration, themes of European teacher education, and relevant teacher education reforms in Austria and Hungary, followed by discussion with strong comparative education elements.

During this visit, our ESR Vasilis Symeonidis and Dr Vasiliki Papadopoulou, Professor of School Pedagogy, agreed on establishing an Erasmus+ staff mobility agreement between the University of Innsbruck and the University of Western Macedonia, further strengthening the collaboration between the two institutions for the period 2018-2021.
