Erasmus + Success Stories
Nadejda's impressions from Fifth Joint International Week of TTK UA
“THE 5TH ERASMUS+ JOINT INTERNATIONAL WEEK IN TALLINN WAS INTENSIVE AND FILLED WITH A NUMBER OF LECTURERS, PRESENTATIONS, SIMULATIONS AND WITH MANY VISITS TO NUMEROUS STUDY LABORATORIES!”
Erasmus+ International Week Meeting Period: 05/11/2018 – 09/11/2018
I participated in the Fifth Joint International Week of TTK UAS, Estonian Academy of Security Sciences and Tallinn Health Care College, in Tallinn, Estonia, with lecturers and administrative staff from educational institutions from the following countries: Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Turkey, Slovakia, Germany, Greece, Ukraine, Russia, Spain, Herzegovina, Romania, Hungary, Latvia, Sweden, Bulgaria and Pakistan.
The Fifth Erasmus+ Joint International Week in Tallinn was intensive and filled with a number of lectures, presentations, simulations and introductory visits to numerous study laboratories and study rooms at most faculties, departments and / or specialties of the host institutions: TTK University of Applied Sciences, TTK University of Applied Sciences Tallinn Health Care College and the Estonian Academy of Secure Sciences. The Programme has provided multiple opportunities for internationalization, exchange of information and contacts between all actors and deepening current or creating potential future partnerships.
I have participated in detailed tours and simulation presentations in the laboratories of Robotics, Rail Construction, Architectural Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. The teaching laboratories at the Tallinn University of Applied Sciences were equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus, machinery and equipment in accordance with the latest scientific and technological progress. Of particular interest was the Building Informational Modeling (BIM) software. After a spontaneously breaking ice break game by Roisin Russ in order to get to know the delegates, we visited the E-Estonia Showroom, where we were presented in detail the national electronic administrative system of Estonia, as well as the benefits of e-citizenship in the Republic of Estonia. The day ended with a formal dinner and a cultural program.
Our participation in The Fifth Erasmus+ Joint International Week with the theme “Prevention, Risk, Responsibility” enriched our experience in the field of student and teaching mobility, student motivation to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme and we acquired new skills in working with international students and lecturers. What we saw motivates us to participate actively in future projects of the Medical University - Sofia, to implement some of the observed approaches in the teaching methodology of our students, gave us the confidence to include in our teaching arsenal some of the methods and means we have not used so far and to actively we assist in the introduction of innovative work and teaching techniques.
