The European Erasmus programme is the most successful mobility programme for students worldwide. Since 1987, more than 3 million young Europeans have joined this programme and studied abroad. The key to success is the general acceptance among European students. The students’ feedback about one semester abroad is almost exclusively positive.
The impact to their life is sustainable: “Young people who study or train abroad not only gain knowledge in specific disciplines, but also strengthen key transversal skills which are highly valued by employers.” (Erasmus Impact Study 2014)
Studying abroad also has an amazingly positve impact for future teachers and their careers. Therefore the Centre for International Relations in Education of the University College of Teacher Education Styria (PHSt) published the first Erasmus+ Journal. This book contains the best Erasmus student reports from the academic year 2013/14. It is available as a book (5 EUR excl. Shipping on Lulu.com) and as a free e-book on http://www.erasmus-journal.eu/e-books/. The first edition of the Erasmus + journal contains 12 articles from 14 Erasmus students. These articles should encourage the next generation of Erasmus students.
The second issue was the next step in the evolution of the Erasmus+ Journal.
More than 90 authors were involved. Reports and articles are published in seven languages (English, German, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Turkish, Spanish). This was made possible through a cooperation with the Katholieke Pabo Zwolle (PABO) in the Netherlands and the Univerity College of Education Styria (PHSt) between Harrie Poulssen of PABO and Heiko Vogl of PHSt.
The third issue strengethened the cooperation between the Katholieke Pabo Zwolle (PABO) in the Netherlands and the Univerity College of Education Styria. This edition of the Erasmus+ Journal contains 34 reports of Erasmus outgoings and Erasmus incoming students at the PHSt. The PABO contributed 51 articles on school placements abroad and about the Dutch international Minor as well as the preface of the international coordinator Harrie Poulssen.
The fourth issue is the last one, which contains 39 articles of the Univerity College of Education Styria (PHSt) and 30 articles of the Katholieke Pabo Zwolle (PABO). The authors are students from all over the world, who were very motivated to let you know the stories about their semester abroad.
This book was created in a collaborative manner. All authors were able to write online at the same time, anywhere in this book.
