Professors from Argentina, Bulgaria, Egypt, Finland, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa and the US came to Hof University for one week to give lectures and exchange ideas. With 19 guest lecturers from 12 countries, this was Hof University's biggest and most international Teaching Week to date.
The third International Teaching Week at Hof University took place from May 22nd to 26th and was jointly organized by the Departments and the International Office of Hof University. The professors taught at all three departments and the language center. Each visiting lecturer was matched with a partner professor from Hof University, while their lectures were part of the regular teaching schedule.
Outside their lectures, the professors participated in joint activities such as excursions to Dresden and the glass manufacturing company Heinz-Glas.
Professor Manuel Alejandro Cadena Vargas, Escuela Bancaria y Comercial, Mexico:
Education is what we, the lecturers, promote in our countries for the development of our society. Without education, we could not be promoters of values, equality, and human rights. Therefore, committed to be a quality lecturer in Mexico, my home country, I do acknowledge the Hof University of Applied Sciences for supporting and giving me the opportunity to travel to Germany to teach students about the topics related to the "German economic policy: impact in emerging markets" within the International Teaching Week.
This given experience in Germany to have close contact with students, has consolidated my lecturer background and professionalism. It is not only my gratitude to the German students who attended my lectures, but also due to their learning and interest shown every moment. The Hof University of Applied Sciences is an excellent, innovative and thriving institution partnered to our business school, EBC.
