ONLINE CONFERENCE with Brazilian colleagues at TSPU
Students and employees of the Tomsk State Pedagogical University held a teleconference with colleagues from the Federal Institute of Joués de Fora (Brazil). For many years, the two universities have maintained successful cooperation, especially regarding the programs of student academic exchanges.
Students from Brazil were interested in the possibilities of entering the master program of the TSPU, designed for foreign students. A special attention was drawn to the faculty of physics and mathematic (FPM) : students asked about the activities of FPM, extracurricular work of students and further plans for new areas of training at the faculty. All questions were answered in detail by the dean Elena Piagnykh and students.
Of course, the student's life was also discussed: colleagues asked about the student self-government and about program of extracurricular activities taking place at the university, as well as in the city. The student of the physics and mathematics faculty of Enkhike Airez de Oliveira from Brazil, who came to Tomsk within the framework of the exchange, had told about his student life and shared his impressions about Tomsk.
During the conference, representatives of universities shared information about the organization of research work of students, student campaigns and projects (business incubator and the Enaktus team, educational robotics, competition of football robots in Brazil and others), discussed the possibilities of academic exchanges of students and internships for teachers, as well as other programs.
