This structured course is designed for teachers, head teachers, principals and other school staff who would like to learn about the Irish education system, which is regarded as a central pillar in the economic, social, and cultural development of Irish society and affirms the quality of Irish graduates both at national and international levels.
The course has a general focus on the Irish 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 and culture of a creative and artistic society that knows how to join a pub band playing contagious traditional music and that has been able to produce four Nobel Prizes Laureates in Literature in the last 95 years.
Please note that this course should be included as a Structured Course in your Erasmus+ project.
