Kurzzeitpraxis an einer österr. Auslandsschule in Istanbul
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The mobility measure includes a 12-day short-term practice for 1 teacher in the St. George's College in Istanbul. At the Vienna BHAK 10 many students are taught whose family originates from Turkey. The mobility measure is intended to provide an insight into the culture and the teaching and learning in Turkey. As a result, it should be possible to better understand the students and their parents, and to facilitate the learning success of students as well as cooperation with the parents. In addition, international contacts should be made. Due to the mobility measure international cooperation of training firms and projects in collaboration with students from both schools will be realized. The participant taught commercial subjects at BHAK and BHAS Vienna 10. Her subjects are focused on training firm, project management, business management and accounting. The participant can therefore continue to maintain contact. Because of the high proportion of non-native German speaking pupils the teachers at BHAK10 Vienna are required to respond the linguistic problems. The mobility measure is to bring insights into how the lessons can be made better in this regard. The partner school as an Austrian school in Istanbul, has experience in the German language teaching with students who do not have German as their mother tongue. The school is just like the BHAK Vienna 10 a HAK and HAS, whereby the short time practice of the participant at St. George's College is particularly useful. The participant will go through training elements and shadowing. She ist also organizing lessons and intensive exchange of experience and discussion of methods, pedagogical approaches, learning barriers and their reduction. Exercise activities are provided to the students from the partner school. The participant informs the teachers from the partner school of the new features in School in Austria and visits other educational institutions. An overview of the proposed measures is at the end of the summary. The participant will report regularly during the mobility to Vienna. To ensure the attainment of targets participant will have a conversation with the director of the partner school after the first week. After the mobility measure, the participant will summarize their experiences and findings in a detailed report documenting the achievement of objectives. This report is presented and provided to the teachers of both schools. The participant shall also establish personal contacts to enable a future international collaboration between the two schools. Training firms from both schools shall build and maintain international business and projects of students from both schools will be carried out in international co-operation of teachers of both schools.
