Call For Application | Tricontinental Teacher Training Program (TTT)


Participants from University of Education, Winneba spend 4 weeks completing a Study Camp at the Universität Hamburg (UHH), Germany. They also attend an intensive preparation course and take part in cultural and university-based activities. After the Study Camp in Germany, they return to University of Education, Winneba to share their experiences with their colleagues through series of faculty seminar presentation. Participants from the partner universities (Universität Hamburg (UHH) and University of North Carolina (UNC) begin the project with coursework and “hosting” their Buddies in the first Study Camp, before preparing to travel to Germany for a four-week Study Camp in Hamburg.

Our goals

The project enables participants to experience education in intercultural contexts. By exposing future teachers to other cultures and encouraging them to reflect on their own experiences and perceptions, it aims to boost professionalism in teacher training studies. Specifically, participants get to observe, analyze, and discuss lessons, educational systems, and didactic methods in Germany, United State of America, and Ghana. These experiences are intended to help them prepare for their work in diverse classrooms. The project gives participants an opportunity to reflect on their preconceptions about other educational systems and expand their knowledge and skills. They explore topics and challenges they are likely to encounter in their future career. Participants also hone their academic skills by participating in a group-based research project.

Successful applicants will be paired with German partners (buddies) with whom they will collaborate on mini projects. They will also participate in Seminars (September – December, 2023) in preparation to hosting partners from Germany who will spend 4 weeks at UEW in February 2024. Following this, Ghanaian students in the program will travel to Hamburg, Germany in the summer of 2024, to participate in a cross-cultural exchange program.
