- Kyiv Economic University (Kyiv),
- South Ukrainian National Pedagogical University (Odesa),
- National Transport University (Kyiv),
- Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy (Kharkiv).
The main goal was to familiarize the students with the practical experience of the University of Constance in implementing effective cooperation in the professional training of teachers in terms of teaching and research.
The participants got acquainted with the features of vocational education and training (VET) and the prospects and challenges of the dual system in Germany. University staff highlighted the practical part, namely the introduction to pedagogical practice and teacher training at the University of Konstanz. Students also gained experience related to VR reality in the context of trainings for teachers, and the opportunity to learn important aspects of educational psychology and cultural didactics.
Based on the personal experience and knowledge gained during the study visit, the participants analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of the German system and presented in presentations what can be useful for implementation in Ukraine.
