The program is carried out during the academic period, when schools can show their daily life and how they function. The course has a general approach to the Finnish Education System although the visits to schools are focused on Primary and Secondary levels. However, participants working with other educational levels may also benefit from the general approach of this course.
This structured course efficiently combines pedagogical visits to schools with seminars and workshops, and field projects “Contexts4Content” to places of natural, historical, and cultural significance which will provide pedagogic insight for the participant’s school community and ideas for development of teaching resources for their students. All these elements will help participants to better understand the education system and the culture of the country,
Participants interested in this course can choose between two modalities:
A) 7-day Structured Course in Finland (7 Training days in Finland).
B) Blended Learning Structured Course (Online sessions + 4 Training days in Finland).
The 7-day Structured Course in Finland provides a broad experience that will allow you to immerse yourself in Finnish society and culture while exploring the Finnish Education System from within.
The Blended Learning Structured Course will offer you more flexibility. During the 1st stage of the course you will learn from home about the Finnish Education system through online live sessions and autonomous learning time. During the 2nd stage, you will spend an enriching 4-day training period in Finland, where you will be able to combine your previous learning with the reality of school life.
