From 28-30 September, within the framework of the Teaching and Learning in Multicultural Classroomproject, representatives of the partners from the University of Stavanger, Vilniaus kolegija/University of Applied Sciences, RISEBA University of Applied Sciences and UCL University College visited the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences. While virtual meetings have been held so far, the first face-to-face meeting of project partners supported by Nordplus Horizontal took place at the end of September.
The topic of the meeting was active learning methods in a multicultural classroom – over the course of three days, the use of active learning methods was observed in the classrooms of both the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences and the International School of Tallinn. Additionally, a presentation was given on active learning methods and a visit to the International House of Estonia took place, where support for multicultural activities in Estonia was discussed.
On the last day of the meeting, a concluding seminar was held on the basis of the previous classroom visits. The seminar was designed to reflect on the experiences of the previous two days and to give and receive feedback. The open library and open space method was used, where all groups first prepared a poster presentation, followed by slide presentations and discussions. Observations made during study visits were mentioned. Participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas on the effectiveness of each method and solution, and agreements on the exchange of faculty and further cooperation were concluded. Participants visited Tallinn Old Town, Ülemiste City and the Rocket 69 studio and discussed the further activities of the project.
