Lecturer plans Erasmus project with Universitatea Adventus

01. Aug. 2022

From 19–22 July 2022, Dr. Friedegard Föltz, lecturer at the School of Social Work at the ThHF, was a guest at the Universitatae Adventus in Cernica, Romania, to get to know the partner university and the staff, to find out about the structures of the pedagogical department and to plan a joint project.

An innovation of the Erasmus programme generation 2021–2027 is the so-called Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP). This is intended to promote new learning and teaching settings and make use of the opportunities for online cooperation. BIPs aim to develop short, intensive and joint curricula and activities. Students and university staff thus have the opportunity to participate in a short physical group mobility combined with a virtual phase. For the academic year 2022/2023, such a curriculum is now being developed in the field of social work, which enables students to work on three credits and also to get to know the history and cultural traditions of the country as well as the academic structures of the university through a local visit.

In addition, there was a cultural framework programme that brought the country and its people closer in an impressive way. Bucharest's huge parliament building, the old town centre, the churches and monasteries in the city as well as an open-air museum village gave incomparable impressions of the country's eventful history and culture.
