International Spring School of Social Work in Europe 2017 for Master’s and doctoral students
The 11th International Spring School of Social Work was held from 4–7 April 2017 at the VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava campus. The event featured a total of 57 participants, of whom 40 were from universities outside the Czech Republic – Eichstätt, Landshut, Koblenz, Bremen (Germany), Hertfordshire (UK), Kuopio (Finland), Trnava (Slovakia), Lille (France), Dornbirn (Austria), and Łódź (Poland). We also welcomed students from Italy, Moscow, Portugal, Rwanda and Turkey.
The programme focused mainly on students’ presentations based on their Master’s or doctoral dissertations, accompanied by discussions with academics, group and individual consultations. The students welcomed the feedback from the academics and the opportunity to discuss the topics of their dissertations with experts from various countries in an informal and supportive environment. As part of the accompanying programme, participants had the opportunity to enjoy an English-language performance of the opera The Rape of Lucretia.
As in previous years, the programme included lectures and a workshop held as part of the project ‘Enlargement and Development of the Research Team at the Faculty of Social Studies, University of Ostrava’ (currently in its sustainability phase). The workshop took the form of a research afternoon featuring Prof. Mariusz Granosik from Poland on the topic ‘Research in social work – grounded theory’.
