Winter School for student teachers

This year's winter school of the DAAD project Lehramt.International will take place on three different days in three different countries. Thanks to its hybrid format, many student teachers will be able to participate.

The Winter School addresses diversity in teacher education through the concept of critical competencies, i.e. the ability to understand the dynamics of (re)production of e.g. linguistic, cultural, gender or socio-economic differences in the classroom and beyond. To participate, please register here.

Research Week 2023

From 11 to 15 September, Nelson Mandela University hosted its annual Research Week.  The university welcomed 457 participants and, in addition to 21 exhibition stands, offered an impressive programme with a variety of experts from different academic fields.

The University of Oldenburg was represented by Ilka Carstens and Dr Anne Clausen from the Department. for Research and Technology Transfer. The focus of their participation in Gqeberha was on talks with the different schools on research cooperation and research stays by South African academics, as well as the presentation of funding opportunities for a stay in Oldenburg.
