Results of implementing EU grant on teacher education discussed at PSU
On 10 – 11 April 2018, V.G. Belinsky Institute of Teacher Education (Penza State University) hosted a regular session devoted to the implementation of the European Union grant on teacher education, youth affairs and academic mobility development within ERASMUS + SATE (School Adoption in Teacher Education) 1-DK01-KA203-022324.
At the joint meetings, the project participants repeatedly noted that one of the possible ways to increase the effectiveness of higher teacher education is to study foreign best practices of teacher training. Education science, like other fields of study, cannot develop in isolation from the world community.
While implementing the joint project on experimental school practice, the representatives of four countries (Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Russia) have an opportunity to take a fresh look at the existing foreign experience of teaching, reevaluate it, and use the advances in teaching and learning approaches in their countries.
Such exchange is particularly important, as it involves not only the representatives of university administration, but also academics, school teachers, practice teachers and students.
The second day of the delegation’s stay in Penza was also saturated. On 11 April 2018, the multidisciplinary gymnasium No. 13 in Penza became the venue for open classes involving primary and secondary school students. Round table and follow-up discussions were also held there.
Undoubtedly, this project facilitates the inclusion of PSU in the all-European education system, both in terms of adopting European best practices, implementing them in the Russian educational system, and promoting innovative ideas of Russian teacher education in European countries.
