As some of the readers of TAMK International Blog may have already heard, I'm currently visiting a TAMK partner University of Wisconsin-Stout. UW-Stout is an active, working life oriented university with 8500 students situated in town of Menomonie in Wisconsin, USA.
So far, I have met a number of UW-Stout faculty members who have been very interested in doing cooperative projects or developing online courses together with TAMK staff. UW-Stout also offers good exchange opportunities for highly motivated, self-guided TAMK students with good English language communication skills. Successful exchange studies in UW-Stout may require slightly more work than studies in TAMK, especially in the form of written reports in English but for those with the right motivation, it is an excellent opportunity to gain international experience.
UW-Stout Professors Bryan Beamer and Kari Dahl will be visiting TAMK during this and the next week with a group of 19 students. I hope many of you have the opportunity to meet them.
If you come up with ideas for cooperative projects or online courses where you could cooperate with UW-Stout staff, please let me know and I will find you the relevant contacts. I will also be posting updates of the projects on this blog.
Have a great beginning of summer!
