Confidence-building measures in the field of education for the Transnistria region



On June 25th, the Council of Europe hosted the round table on “European trends in teaching and learning: experiences and practices”. The event, which gathered academic representatives from higher education institutions from both sides of the river Dniestr, provided a very productive platform for discussion and exchange of good practices on current developments in the teaching and learning methods in Europe. A further objective of the round table was to question the extent to which innovative teaching methods have been and can be further translated into an every-day practice of higher education institution.
