Online LTT Event Austria

From 14 to 16 September, our first Online Learning Teaching Training Activity took place. The first day was used to give the participants an introduction to the city of Graz and the VET system in Austria. In addition, we gained insights into the topic of sustainability in teaching by having Ms Hübner, University of Klagenfurt, present sustainable initiatives as well as the project BuNE-Z, in which she is involved.

This first day came to a pleasant end with a quiz on Austrian culture.
