Tea Time Thursday
Travelling to various places in the world is currently impossible. However, the earth keeps turning and the process of internationalization is continuing, also in teacher education. That is why we would like to invite you on a journey across the globe to get impulses of and for teacher education from around the world. This possibility of global networking from home gives you the opportunity to learn about teacher education in different countries without needing to leave.
