The Covid-19 time has not killed mobility activities completely. In
addition to the cooperation project with our Portuguese partner in March, our
teacher (and alumnus) Taavi Adamberg also conducted virtual lectures during the
Taavi is a lecturer in the Aeronautical Engineering department and he took part
in virtual exchange thanks to Vilnius Gediminas Technical University’s (VILNIUS
TECH Antanas Gustaitis' Aviation Institute) initiative. Namely all partner
institutions were called for exchanging lecturers' competencies and enriching regular
study process through virtual foreign guest lectures.
During the virtual exchange, Taavi met with aircraft piloting students from
different years - the lectures on the Aircraft
(helicopters) fuel supply systems (airframe fuel systems) were integrated into
the 2nd year students’ programme and the lectures on the Automatic and programmed control of flight
trajectory were provided to 4th year aircraft piloting students.
According to Taavi, delivering lectures within virtual teaching mobility does
not differ from everyday work. “Students are still similar - here or there”,
said Taavi. He highlighted that especially positive was the opportunity to
familiarize with the structure and topics of the pilot training program in
another country. Furthermore, the ways how to actively involve students in
lectures were possible to be tested.
For Taavi, virtual learning mobility was the first experience as a teacher.
However, he dreams now that the next mobility could be physical.
