Learning by the lake 14/09/2016 Abonner på nyheter RSS This autumn 8 international students have chosen to study at QMUC. International coordinator Anne Sine van Marion is accompanying the QMUC-students on their trip to Frøset. Melissa Caris and Tesssa Wilhelmina van Brink, The Netherlands, Roxána Hegedüs, Hungary, Sarah Smith, Yue Pan, Marisha Excell-Rehm and Alice Chang, USA, plus Iria Fernàndez Rodrìguez, Spain, are all studying Norwegian Early Childhood Education and Care at QMUC. One of their first meetings with Norwegian nature is a visit to QMUC`s old farm Frøset gård. Perfectly situated in the forest surrounding the southern part of Trondheim, Frøset is only a brief 20 minutes walk from the parking ground near Trondheim`s big ski-jump. The exchange students are going to learn how to paddle a canoe. Some of them have been out in a kayak before, but this is still an exciting adventure. Before they take off they get a lecture from Assistant Professor Anne Berg at QMUC. The lake Leirsjøen is easily within carrying distance from the farm, and the students have no problems getting the canoes down to the water. Alice Chang and Marisha Excell-Rehm are from The University of Seattle. - I am studying Early Childhood Education at the University of Seattle, says Ms. Chang. - Now I`m looking forward to learn about the Early Childhood Education in Norway. It`s interesting to experience something new, you learn and grow from being in a different country. Ms Excell Rehm agrees. - There`s many parks and lakes around Seattle, but outdoors schools are not very common. After this course some of the students will stay a further few months in Norway, studying Outdoor Play and Learning in Norwegian Early Childhood Education. International courses at QMUC.
