Within the framework of the CRIMHUM project, lectures were provided by experts from universities of the Member States of the European Union for master-students from universities in Belarus and Ukraine.
This activity pursues two goals in the project:
1) a master-class for teachers from universities in Belarus and Ukraine,
2) familiarization of master students with foreign (European) experience in the field of criminal law and procedure.
Of course, the consortium, when drawing up the workplan in 2018, did not yet know what the world expects in 2020. However, already at that time the lectures were scheduled online, which made it possible to carry them out on time in accordance with the workplan.
The first slot of lectures was delivered to Belarusian and Ukrainian master-students from November 2020 to March 2021. Almost all lectures were delivered in English. Lecturers entered into discussions with students.
The cycle of lectures was opened by Prof. Dr. Thomas Krüßmann (University of Graz) at Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University. In addition, lectures were given by Katerina Soulou and Dr. Natasa Danelciuc-Colodrovschi (Aix-Marseille University), Associate Professor of Practice Gintaras Jasaitis (Vilnius University).
The role of the host teacher was also important. She (he) needed to prepare students for the information that would be given at the lectures of the European expert, and when working in the classroom, moderation of the lesson was also required (if necessary, clarification of some issues from the point of view of national approaches).
In connection with the extension of the project, we expect to continue the practice of online lectures in the next academic year.
In addition, master students in Belarus have already started their practical training.
