Erasmus year: 2017
Destination: University of Modena and Regio Emilia, Italy
I had a very stimulating Erasmus+ experience in Modena, Italy. I was fascinated by the level of commitment my Italian colleagues showed, their approachability and the respect they enjoy from students. I had to adapt to a new environment and I learnt a lot during my visit there. Teaching Italian students was challenging, but I managed to combine my experience from the UK with my Mediterranean background and the outcome was an interesting teaching and learning experience. My visit will pave the way for closer cooperation between Leicester and Modena and it was the first of much more to come!
