"In a diverse world, my thoughts should also be diverse, and I have only achieved this by exchanging ideas with people whose thoughts and experiences enrich me. Through the exchange at MOTIVATE! I have come up with completely new thoughts and developed new ideas for myself as a future teacher and also as a person. Celebrating the now of education and having courage and visions for the later is what I have found for myself this year."
Student at TU Berlin and former MOTIVATE! student
"MOTIVATE! is a great opportunity if you want to think outside the box as a teacher student. You get to know facets of the teaching profession together with international students, make contacts and form friendships. It really is a good first step if you want to engage with education internationally!"

"In any case, it is very valuable to get to know a different culture of teaching. The interaction with lecturers and students in Norway is more on an equal footing, so you get the impression that you are working on something together instead of just solving an impersonal task to generate points. A personal project is created."

"MOTIVATE! provides students with distinct benefits as they develop acceptance for cultural diversity, self-confidence, initiative and curiosity through cross-cultural learning."

"MOTIVATE! enables students to freely exchange thoughts and ideas on relevant topics while also gaining important intercultural skills and knowledge."

“In the world today, schools can only succeed with an international approach: the diversity of pupils in Berlin and elsewhere, the social and technological challenges of the future, all this is globally and locally connected and we need a reflexive, well-informed and open-minded view across any borders.”
