19-21 April the delegation from Maastricht University visit TSU.

Partnership between universities and further development of the Master’s Programme Physics Methods and Information Technologies were on the agenda.

During the meetings the representatives discussed the following issues:

  • Enhancement of foreign language proficiency in the faculty members
  • Approval of research topics
  • Organisation of research studies
  • Integration of optional courses into the Programme
  • Student recruitment

Students attended the workshops on problem-based learning as one of the most common technologies used by the partner university.

Real learning environment was simulated at the workshop starting with setting a problem and ending with discussion or defence of solutions and their assessment.

The results can be considered as an example of the effective organisation of learning environment.
