Msc teaching and learning process reviewed
These are some of the main conclusions of a workshop on Intercultural Learning and Education, held last Friday, October 20. This workshop, organised by the Dean's Office and the Department of Agricultural Education, brought together first year MSc students, programme directors and teachers. This was a follow-up to the intercultural communication workshop. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the influence of the aspects specific to international education on the teaching-learning process and consequently on the mutual expectations of teachers and students. The conclusions and evaluation of this workshop will be sent to all teachers involved in international education. Jan Steen, of the department of Agricultural Education, believes that a lot of problems can be circumvented by introducing practical improvements such as clearly written course information. However, Steen is also planning to investigate if there is a need among teachers for specific kinds of training.
