Representatives of Advance HE, Kathy Wright and John Unsworth, met the leaders and teachers of the most popular foreign language faculties of UD to get a picture of the practical side of the education offered by UD. As a result, they had been able to develop a training programme that exactly met the needs of the university.
Among other things, participants heard about interactive methods and technical novelties, such as applications that help keep the attention of students and check if they understood what was said, which they can apply right away, in this semester.
The experts highlighted that UD had realised how important it is for teachers to be up-to-date in terms of the newest methods and to apply them in order to provide high-quality education.
Participants received their diplomas on Friday, 7 September.
- In recent years, audit processes have revealed that university teachers need further training in methodologies. By improving the academic programmes and making students more satisfied, this can result in higher positions in the international university rankings –the vice rector for education affairs of UD pointed out at the ceremony.
Elek Bartha expressed his hope that the knowledge participants acquired will be put in practice in the everyday work of teachers.
Attila Jenei, director of the Coordinating Center for International Education of UD, which organised the training programme, pointed out that the growing number of foreign students at the university also makes it vital for teachers to be up-to-date in terms of cutting-edge teaching methodologies and good practices.
