2nd Erasmus+ Staff Training Week

2nd Erasmus+ Staff Training Week

On Friday 7 April 2017 the 2nd ERASMUS+ STAFF TRAINING WEEK was successfully concluded. The Staff Training Week was hosted by the Department of Cultural Exchanges and Public Relations of the University of Thessaly. Seventeen (17) staff members participated in the Staff Week, from sixteen (16) different Universities all around Europe; Germany, Denmark, USA, Spain, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Czech Republic. During the Training Week there were sessions, discussions, and presentations of all the Universities by their respective attending representatives, aiming for the exchange of good practices and methods as well as for the strengthening of relations among the Universities. The participants had the opportunity, among others, to attend a 3-hour course on the Greek language and Greek traditional dances by the student dance group of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science. The activities were extended beyond the facilities of the University of Thessaly, a visit to the traditional villages of Pelion and a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Volos were also part of the week’s programme. The visit to the Archaeological Museum was realized thanks to the impeccable collaboration with the Association of Friends of the Athanasakeion Archaeological Museum of Volos, offering a comprehensive tour of the museum in English.
The week’s activities covered any demands on professional knowledge and experience as well as the familiarization of the participants with the Greek culture and the University of Thessaly. This initiative falls into the wider range of activities for the internalization of our University within the Erasmus+ framework.
