From 25 November to 4 December, the INTAMT Academy organised a training course for university teachers from Kazakhstan on the topic of “Innovative methods and technologies in practice-oriented education at German universities”. The study tour consisted of several seminars, which took place both in the academy’s own premises and in various educational institutions. With representatives of the Centre for Higher Education and Quality Development at the University of Duisburg-Essen and the FOM Hochschule für Ökonomie & Management, the training participants discussed the role of reflection in teaching as well as the taxonomy of pedagogical goals and the working method of mind mapping. Special attention was given to project work in training. At the University of Koblenz-Landau, specialists from Kazakhstan took part in a seminar on distance education. Furthermore, they visited the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf and learned how best to attract students and prospective doctoral candidates to research while they are still studying. Problems of inclusive education were highlighted at the University of Cologne. And the training participants found the excursion to the Moselle and Luxembourg, which were part of the cultural part of the programme, no less interesting.
