Teachers of Luoyang Institute of Science and Technology visiting TAMK

Group of teachers arrived from Luoyang Institute of Science and Technology to TAMK in the beginning of November 2015. They explore the structure of University of Applied Sciences in order to develop new education system corresponding to their own needs.

The group is interested in building a new education system such as University of Applied Sciences in China. They would want to proceed towards more practical and work-life based education instead of scientific teaching.

The group consists of teachers and administrative staff members. The 3-week visit includes clarification of TAMK's operation and presenting of different campuses. They experience the learning environments in ProAcademy, Mediapolis and TAMK Consulting Academy. Business collaboration and innovation operation gained a lot of attention and interest. The group visited Fastems Oy and TAMK's learning environment built inside the company.

The history of Tampere as industrial city was a surprise. Luoyang city has a remarkable paper and textile industry which causes pollution in the air and waterways. The group was impressed by Tampere's progressiveness and the purity of water and air.

The heterogeneous group's several interests are being noticed throughout the visit. The visiting sites and other topics are organized regarding individual needs. The group will return to Luoyang on 27th of November, 2015.
