Shadow Day at TSI!
Yesterday, Ishgaly Ishmukhametov, the teacher and Chairman of the Department of Social Sciences and Law of the Transport and Telecommunication Institute (TSI), was followed by five shadows!
The matter is that on 11 February a Shadow Day is traditionally conducted in Latvia. This year, the schoolchildren of Riga Purvciems Secondary School, Riga Secondary School No. 63, Riga Secondary School No. 22 and Riga Secondary School No. 25 expressed a wish to shadow our teacher.
During this day, the schoolchildren had a possibility to envision themselves as teachers and see the student classroom with his eyes, to ask questions about the pedagogical activity and the possibilities of career and job placement.
The schoolchildren watched the teacher’s work in the Department, visited lectures on presentation skills, social psychology and sociology as well as became acquainted with the educational programmes of the Department of Economics and Management.
An excursion to the scientific laboratories of the Institute and a visit to the flight simulator for the Airbus А320 aircraft maintenance was organised for schoolchildren.
We are very glad that they liked it!
We hope that the Shadow Day will become a good tradition of our higher education institution.
