current international project[edit]

We will carry out projects about primary school teaching, open learning and the ideas of formal and informal instruction together with students from Bulgaria, the USA and Germany. The professors involved are Leigh Ausband (USA), Iliana Mirtschewa (Bulgaria) and Klaudia Schultheis (Germany). Our students will work together on some of the topics and prepare presentations and thus create content which they will present online.
