Year 2: The European Practice Field

The aim of The European Field of Practice is for the students to acquire an extensive knowledge and insight into European reality. It helps them as future teachers to understand the social context of their future students. The first year is divided into 3 periods, each with their own headlines, aims and content.

The 2nd year has three periods in total:

WORKING PERIOD  · 6 months of working and living in a town

The national field of practice starts with a six-month period in a bigger European town, where the students aim to experience and understand the reality of social and living conditions of the Europeans by living and working in their town.

Students also participate in local initiatives, study, organise cultural events and carry out field investigations and actions. They identify and meet with young european leaders and carry out actions with their organisations.

How can we make a difference?
What impact can we have on our local community?

DOING WHAT YOU FIND MOST APPROPRIATE TO DO · 3 months

As a teacher, you need to know how to organise your time. You need to take stock of situations and to be able to identify the difference between idea and action – and the difference between knowing and doing. That’s why we have this period included in the teacher training programme.

In this period each student envisions their own ideas about what they benefit most from doing and then carries them out in practice.

Each student decides, individually or together with others, on the background if what they now know and where they stand:

What is the most appropriate for me to do for 3 months?

“IMAGES” · Experiences from the 2nd Year at DNS

Tuesday Café at Tvind

Tuesdays evening is always special at the campus in Tvind. It is the evening of the Tuesday café, where everybody at Tvind are together, enjoying a nice program with all kinds of activities.

Studies in Year Two

You had decided to do a study task about Big Media in Europe. Every day, you were bombarded by the media: Catching the news on your phone on your way to work, watching TV in the evening…

Meeting the Neighbours

You decided to mobilise the whole team and simply go out and visit every house in the neighbourhood and introduce yourself. Later that evening, you gathered the group and explained what you had in mind.
