DAAD Project Internationalising Teacher Education

Lesson Studies and virtual internship abroad

In May and September two international workshops on lesson studies (classroom observation, analysis and planning) took place online. The lesson studies were offered to students from the University of Oldenburg, Nelson Mandela University (South Africa) and the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands). 

As a virtual school intern you will be able to get a glimpse of classrooms in South Africa, Germany and the Netherlands. The lesson studies will provide an opportunity to discuss key issues of teaching (planning and delivery of lessons, cultural similarities und differences) and illuminate the respective school systems together with students and faculty from the partner universities.
