As part of our school’s Erasmus KA1 + programme funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the EU , four teachers participated in an educational training programme in Helsinki in the first week of May. The theme of the course was 21st century classrooms with the emphasis on “ Innovative Approaches to Teaching”. The training covered a practical guide to modern teaching methodologies which helps improve quality and effectivity of educational process in any classroom. The modules were designed to encourage creativity, project organisation, integration of minority pupils and the use of ICT as a tool for developing critical thinking. Teachers from seven different countries across Europe attended the training course which led to a multicultural exchange of teaching methods and ideas. The emphasis was “on learning by doing” and this was achieved through various collaborative and reflective activities. Some of the modules included inquiry based learning, using ICT skills for assessment, metacognition, involving teaching students to learn, and differentiated classes. For the final two days the course was conducted at the Vantaa Vocational College in Helsinki. This was a very impressive institution with many varied courses available to the students.
The four teachers who travelled to Finland were Ms. G. Martin (Maths Department), Ms. D Staunton (Business Department), Mr. C Mc Hugh (Business and Maths Department) and Ms. M. Concar (Maths / Science Department). All teachers found that the course helped them to enhance their skills and to use various innovative teaching methods that are learner- centred and also found it encouraged the solving of real-world tasks. Finland is renowned for its high educational standards and it was a wonderful opportunity for our teachers to experience this first hand. Many thanks to Ms. Carroll, Mr. Devaney and Dr. Chambers who were instrumental in organising this Erasmus programme.
