PUBLICATION: Vocational Education and Training in the Baltic Sea Region as Impact for Entrepreneurship and Regional Development (2016)

This publication gives on the one hand a highlighted overview of current trends, innovations and potentials of VET systems in the BSR countries Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Finland. These analytical highlights are therefore focussing the different national “States of Play” in the BSR regions regarding their VET systems, but also give some impressions concerning systemic internationalisation of VET or possibilities of interregional VET collaboration. These contributions are presenting a more top-down view of VET, also taking into account the national strategies of implementing European education policy and the EUSBSR.

On the other hand the publication shows the immense “development power” that funded VET projects in the BSR can have on “(Inter)Regional VET Innovation Systems”. For this the publication will describe the “VET reality” regarding international/interregional VET cooperation and projects in the BSR in the last years while presenting a selection of relevant funded BSR projects with a project focus or aspects regarding VET (including important thematically related projects with focus i.e. human capacity building, labour market policy, school to work transition, entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship education, SME internationalisation etc.). So this could be seen as a shortened compendium of relevant projects dealing with VET issues in the BSR.

All these contributions lead to the fact, that if the BSR would like to be a model region of sustainable interregional VET cooperation, potentials and innovations should be discussed mutually and transparently between VET stakeholders/decision-makers in the BSR. Furthermore projects, funded by the various funding programmes with regional scope on the BSR and as “bottom-up VET development tools”, should be strengthened for international/interregional VET collaboration “at the base”. All this leads to three simple things to realise for boosting this development:

Learning – (Net)Working – Transmitting!

PUBLICATION: Interregional Teaching and Learning in the Baltic Sea Region (2014)

Martin French; Hanka Lent; Britta Will (Eds.) (2014): Interregional Teaching and Learning in the Baltic Sea Region - On the Road to a European Education Area?!

This book provides an account of the current system of interregional teaching and learning in the Baltic and aims to answer the questions of whether and how a Baltic or, in time, a European Education Area can be constructed. It begins with an overview of the different educational systems in the Baltic countries, before going on to analyse current teacher training systems in the region. There follows an explanation of the ways in which cooperation and networks should be organised and structured in order to make it possible for educational systems to develop and educators to receive professional training across national and regional boundaries. It continues with a closer analysis of the teaching and learning process, looking closely at the interregional experience of the pilot project COHAB (Co-ordination and Integration of Higher Education and the Labour Market around the South Baltic Sea), which involves both personal contact and virtual environments.

The publication contains practical guidance, provides insights gained from project experience, and gives specific recommendations concerning the conditions and processes of interregional teaching and learning in the Baltic. The aim is thus to encourage the further growth of internationalisation of the educational systems, policies and structures in the region and to inspire initiatives, in particular to develop, apply for and implement pilot and innovative projects with the help of the numerous Baltic funding programmes. The publication should finally and most importantly serve to illustrate to the many committed teachers in the Baltic the value of cooperating with colleagues from other regions in the daily teaching and learning process, in keeping with the maxim: Learn globally, teach locally!

REVIEW: Transfer of Innovative Teaching and Learning Methods (03-05/12/2014)

Based on the ERASMUS cooperation agreement in teaching between the University of Rostock and the Linneaus University the two universities offered an international seminar "Strategies and Methods for the Transfer and Use of Tacit Knowledge" in December 2014 in Rostock.

Everyone has a broad spectrum of tacit knowledge. Tacit knowledge is considered as internalized and non obvious knowledge components, which influences and manages activities. Uncovering and transfering the tacit knowledge is therefore rather complex because of it’s hidden characteristics. The method of “dialogic learning” is one instrument, which helps to reveal it. Involving the ERASMUS programme and in cooperation with Linneaus University, the Chair of Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Education at the University of Rostock organized a three-day workshop for its students to use, try, and learn about this method.

REVIEW: ERASMUS Teaching Cooperation with the Linneaus University in Växjö and Kalmar (20-24/10/2014)

Based on the successful three year collaboration within the project COHAB (South Baltic Programme Interreg IV), the University of Rostock and the Linneaus University established a new ERASMUS cooperation agreement in teaching. The cooperation focusses now primarily on the collaboration of the departments of education. 

Under this agreement, Ms. Britta Will (Research Assistant) visited the Linneaus University in Kalmar and Växjö to introduce aspects of German vocational training for students of vocational teacher training. In lectures and discussions, students learned how German vocational edcuation and training (VET) and initial and further teacher training are structured. The Swedish training is almost exclusively organized in schools. Therefore, the idea of the structures and the organization of the German dual training system lead to many questions, i.e. how the motivation of companies is achieved to engage in VET actively. Questions like these were answered in small individualized discussions.
