This structured course is designed for teachers, head teachers, principals and other school staff who would like to learn about the Icelandic education system, which is considered one of the most interesting in Europe.
The course has a general focus on the Icelandic education system although the pedagogic encounters with schools are focused on Primary, Secondary and Vocational levels. However, participants working with other educational levels may also benefit from the general approach of this course.
This 7-Day Structured Course efficiently combines pedagogic encounters with schools, seminars, workshops, and field projects “Contexts4Content” to places of natural, historical, and cultural significance. This will provide pedagogic insight for participants and ideas for development of teaching resources for their students. All these elements will help you better understand the education, the culture, the extreme natural environment, and the wonderful people of this amazing country of ice and fire on the outskirts of Europe.
Please note that this course should be included as a Structured Course in your Erasmus+ project.
