Return from Kenya becomes harder and harder every time. Not because I do not want to come home but because the need for educational cooperation is so high. I feel like staying there and getting to real work. I have a strong need to help and get my skates on.
From 15th to 19th August 2022 an educational group from the University of Wyoming, USA participated in a 21st Century Teacher Education Trip organised by Tampere University of Applied Sciences.

The beginning of August was a memorable moment for the group of Kenyan students who arrived to Tampere University of Applied Sciences to study in the Degree Programme of Physiotherapy (3,5 years). Long flight from home, mind full of excitement and a new city to adapt into. Despite the burden created by travelling, spirits were high. This is Tampere, our new home!
TAMK has organised simulation exercises in safety management every few years, where various hazardous incidents have been demonstrated to the participants. The most recent exercise was held in June at the main campus, in Catering Studio facilities. The aim was to test the management team's capabilities and resilience in the management of exceptional situations. The timing of the exercise was known in advance by the participants, but only the members of the preparatory group were aware about the content of the safety training.
