Since last year, the Teaching Practice Week is being held virtually but after the success of TPW 2020 and two full semesters of online teaching, the scholars are ready to practise in distance mode more than ever. As part of the programme, CJV staff members will be accompanying all fellows during their 2 online seminars, providing consultations, detailed feedbacks and observations and other pedagogical support. Even though Max Weber researchers cannot visit the city of Brno, they will explore it through an online cultural programme prepared by the organisational team.
