Between 19 and 25 February, Director of the Institute of English Studies of Freiburg University of Education (Germany), Professor Thomas Manfred Raith, visited Voronezh State University. It was his fourth visit to VSU. The goal of the visit was to hold consultations and research workshops in Methodology of Educational Research for the students of the master’s programme “Foreign Language Teaching with the Application of Online Technologies”.
He also had a meeting with the Rector of Voronezh State University, Dmitry Endovitsky, and the Head of the International Cooperation Department, Oleg Belenov, where Professor Raith spoke favourably about organisation of the educational process for the master’s programme “Teaching Foreign Languages with the use of Online Technologies”. The professor thanked the Rector of VSU for the two weeks of joint learning by the Russian and German students doing the Pedagogical Education programme at the faculty of Romance and Germanic Philology which took place in September 2017. The parties agreed to continue cooperation between VSU and Freiburg University of Education within the existing agreement and as a part of other international activities.
