Visits

Go - See - Understand

Study visits are a unique tool to develop a European dimension in education and training. According to the given definition of a "study visit" we organised short stays of between 3 and 5 days in a host country for a group of between 10 and 15 learners and teachers, to examine a particular aspect of lifelong learning. The group usually consisted of people from all partners. The study visits normally included presentations, discussions and on-site visits to places such as nature reserves, visitor centres and demonstration sites. During the study visit, the group reflected together on various issues pertinent to the theme of the study visit, shared points of view, exchanged information and key documents, explored other ways of seeing things to solve common problems, or simply considered possible solutions.
