Special editions: School Development (Helsinki)

Special edition courses with Forum Eltern und Schule focus on the most innovative development in school education in Finland and Estonia. The Finnish comprehensive school is uniform for children from the age 6 to 15 years. For two decades it has brought the best learning results in Europe. In Pisa 2018 Estonia was Number 1, Finland 2nd.

Special edition: School Development in Europe for the 21st Century – Stimulation for the Development of Your School

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.

This seminar is provided by Forum der Eltern und Schule, Dortmund Germany. Institution of Adult Education acknowledged by state. Carried by GGG NRW, Federation for Schools of Integrated Learning.

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.

Main topics will be:

  1. Innovation. School development plans, curriculum reform, 21st century skills.
  2. Transition from non-digital to digital.
