In the Spring of 2013 teacher education and nurse education students from each partner were selected to participate in the Summer School and subsequent virtual course.

The two week summer school took place in Klaipeda, Lithuania, from 18 - 30 August.

Team Teacher:

In August 2013 twenty teacher training students and ten lecturers from the COHAB partner universities in Denmark, Germany, Lithuania and Sweden participated in a two weeks summer school in Klaipeda, Lithuania. The aim of the summer school was for the participants get to know one another and to start focusing on issues relevant to a virtual course, which students and lecturers will take part in in the autumn of 2013 and spring of 2014.

Among other things, the COHAB team visited cultural and historic sites in the Klaipeda region, such as Palanga Amber Museum, and the team also made a short trip to the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. In addition to this, the programme was packed with lessons, assignments and lots of social activities to further collaboration and friendship between the partners.

Student Study Visits

Student Study Visits

During component 5, the teacher education students will go on study visits to Denmark, Germany and Sweden and nurse education students will go to Poland, Denmark and Lithuania. Each study trip lasts 5 days.

In the first week of December nurse education students went to Klaipeda, Lithuania, and teacher education students will visit Rostock, Germany.

Team Nurse and Teacher study visit to Denmark

The first study visit was in Denmark and took place from 8 to 11 October 2013 and both groups were in Denmark during this period. Teacher education students were in Vordingborg and nurse education students in Nykøbing Falster

In October 2013 the COHAB team at University College Zealand, Denmark, welcomed students and lecturers from the German, Lithuanian and Swedish COHAB partners for a five days study visit in the southern region of Zealand.

The students attended a number of classes focusing on ICT, culture and mobility, and as a part of the programme, the team also visited primary schools and vocational centres in order to gain insight into the Danish education system and differences and similarities between the Baltic countries.

The last day of the study visit was spent in Copenhagen, where visits to the National Museum of Denmark and Christiansborg Palace represented the cultural and historic part of the study visit. All in all, the study visit proved very fruitful from both an academic and a social point of view.
