About the internationalisation of teacher education project (Lehramt.International) at the University of Oldenburg: Dimensions of Diversity in Teacher Education

The DAAD funded project Dimensions of Diversity in Teacher Education aims to promote a sustainable internationalisation of teacher education at the University of Oldenburg and its partners, the Nelson Mandela University (South Africa), the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and the NHL Stenden (both Netherlands). It is intended to facilitate stays abroad as well as virtual mobilities. We aim at eliminating as many obstacles as possible in order to facilitate for students and teachers to spend time abroad for study or research purposes or to take part in a virtual mobility. Mobility and exchanges include traditional student exchanges as well as guest lectureships abroad and hybrid summer schools. Trainee teachers taking part in the exchanges will be supported both before and after their mobility, for example, through intercultural training sessions and the use of digital tools. Exchanges, learning and working together help students become aware of the many dimensions of diversity in teacher education and prepare them more adequately for their professional life as teachers. The activities also contribute significantly to the internationalisation at home initiative.

The following disciplines are currently involved: Education and Special Needs Education, English/American Studies, German Studies, Dutch Studies and Musicology, as well as Biology and Chemistry; others will join prospectively.

Contents and objectives of this project are meant to pursue sustainability. Curricula and structures will continue to be firmly embedded in teacher training, even after the project comes to an end, and the partnerships with the University of Groningen, the NHL Stenden and Nelson Mandela University will be further strengthened.
