School Development

Learn the latest skills

School Development in Europe for the 21st Century – Stimulation for the Development of Your School course is provided by Forum der Eltern und Schule, Dortmund Germany, an institution of Adult Education acknowledged by state, carried by GGG NRW, Federation for Schools of Integrated Learning. For over ten years Forum der Eltern und Schule has been offering courses in different European countries which have taken different roads of innovation for the improvement of learning. Feedback from our participants taught us that their experiences opened up their mind and view towards their own teaching and their school for new ideas and practice. In many a case new ideas were put into practice. On the background of school development in Finland, one of the top performers of European school education, participants from different European countries will contribute their best practice examples in this course. Observe lessons, exchange with colleagues of your own school level, and contribute to discussion with a “success story” of your own school. Courses will include expert presentations and workshops.

The added value of the course is that it offers partner search possibilities for KA1, KA2 and eTwinning activities.
