Second Benchmarking Workshop held in Budapest 25.-27.11.2013

Our workshop took place in Budapest University of Technology and Economics (main building in the picture above, other building below). The surroundings for our workshop was excellent and we were very well taken care of. The discussions were interesting and it is always useful to compare and discuss some "hot topics" concerning university pedagogics and curriculum design anddevelopment.

On the fist day we introduced our universities a little bit and of course we also started to discuss the workshop themes as well. The themes for the first day were curriculum work, design, implementation and development.

 On the second day the discussions continued with themes: pedagogical competence, participatory pedagogy and fostering creativity and innovativeness and supporting international students.

The last day was spent in terms of exploring the paths to becoming a vocational teacher in Finland and in Hungary as well as closing discussions and developing future project ideas.

The collaboration between Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Tampere University of Technology and Budapest University of Technology and Economics continues with the workshop themes in our home institutions. After final exchange if information, knowledge and good practices, all the partner universities can then self analyse what practices to furher develop and what kind of actions to take in the future. We hope to see as many of the Budapest colleagues as possible in project's closing seminar in May 2014 in Tampere.
