Teacher exchange allows you to develop your pedagogical skills, gain experience of teaching in a foreign language, develop your networks and meet colleagues in partner universities. In addition, you will also get to know the teaching culture and methods of your own discipline at the partner university.
Teacher exchange offers plenty of different opportunities to develop your teaching skills, enrich the teaching offered by your unit, and strengthen the university’s cooperation with its partner universities. The Erasmus teaching exchange is based on reciprocity: a teacher from the University of Helsinki gets to learn more about the teaching culture at a partner university, and a unit or degree programme at the University of Helsinki gains a teaching resource from the partner university.
According to the feedback, many teachers at the University of Helsinki have found the Erasmus teacher exchange to be a positive learning experience that helped them develop their competence.
