Tandem Project overcomes COVID limits

With the support of UConn’s Global Experiental Learning program, Prof. Friedemann Weidauer and Inga Ploetzl, of the Experiential Global Learning Office, were able to bring students together when COVID prevented them from traveling:

German – English Tandem Project

“Students from Connecticut, who plan to study at a university in BW, teamed up with one or two students from Connecticut’s German partner universities, who plan to come to the U.S. in the near future. The groups have been meeting on a weekly basis throughout the spring semester and discuss topics related to their respective home and host countries and academic systems. The goal is to prepare each other for the study abroad experience by sharing insider knowledge, as well as some of the do’s and don’ts, thereby increasing excitement about the upcoming adventure.”
