Eight professors from partner institutions in India, Mexico, the US, France and Poland came to Hof University for one week to give lectures and exchange ideas.
The second International Teaching Week, which took place from 8th to 12th June, was jointly organized by the three Departments and the International Office of Hof University. The professors hailed from the fields of marketing, labor law, procurement management, financial accounting, economics, composite materials and information systems.
Each visiting lecturer was matched with a partner professor from Hof University, while their lectures were part of the regular teaching schedule. In addition, an International Research Colloquium at the Institute for Materials Science provided a platform for discussing topics such as 3D-printing of industrial materials or energy efficient textile heating systems.
Outside their lectures, the professors participated in joint activities such as excursions to Dresden and the open-air museum Mödlareuth.
The next International Teaching Week is scheduled for 2017.
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.
