Location: Tallinn, Estonia
This structured course is designed for teachers, head teachers, principals and other school staff who would like to learn about the Estonian education system, which is considered one of the best education system in Europe, according to PISA. Estonia's good results are owed to a decentralized and egalitarian education system, to their professional and motivated teachers, and to their investment in innovation and constant learning. Emphasis is placed on problem-solving, critical thinking, entrepreneurship, and digital competence encouraging students to take an active part in their education.
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. The course has a general focus on the Estonian education system although the pedagogic encounters with 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.
Please note that this course should be included as a Structured Course in your Erasmus+ project.
