International teacher mentoring continues at TAMK
The teacher mentors have grown experts in showing the most interesting faces of Tampere and the surrounding area to their visitors. The mentors have shared meals at the local restaurants and the feelings of cultural and sportive events of the city with their guests. Introducing the foreign colleagues to the business and industrial life in the Tampere Region, as well as making the guests familiar with the facets of TAMK's educational services and know-how - often beyond the guests' own field of expertise - has been greeted with pleasure for the past two years.
Now that TAMK is under a lot of changes due to the merger with PIRAMK since 1 January 2010, the International Teacher Mentors are happy to hear that this kind of mentoring will continue in the Academic Year 2010-2011, too. It seems that even a larger group of internationally-minded TAMK staff will be summoned to host and mentor foreign colleagues.
