Expert educators at the Department of German Philology combine elements of foreign and Russian educational technologies with the use of the latest active and interactive forms of inclusive learning, including individual trainings with the personal focused approach to training. Contacts with a number of foreign universities allow senior students to conduct training abroad and to improve language skills in communication with native speakers. During foreign training our students get acquainted with the traditions and lifestyles of the respective countries, master dialect knowledge and increase their overall cultural awareness.
Teachers of the department take part in international conferences and symposiums. Some of them are members of the International organization of of Europhras, DAAD, Tempus. In 2013 for the first time in Russia the International Europhras conference took place at Kazan Federal University with help of the department of the German philology. There is a signed contract with the University of Bamberg (Germany) on cooperation in education and research activity and studying the language, culture, international relations, foreign policy and cross-cultural communication.
One of the projects implemented by the department is called “Promoting Sustainable Excellence in Testing and Assessment of German”. The aim of this project is to develop teaching resources that will form competences and practical skills of testing and evaluating of the language knowledge in order to raise our students' international competitiveness and mobility. This program is held jointly with European universities.
