– Tuetaan yhdessä!

The project ”Supporting together! Multidisciplinary and digital cooperation to support learning” funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture Supported. The project aims to implement a teacher training development program, to develop teacher training skills and to develop the contents of special teacher education. The project will be implemented between 1 September 2017 and 31 July 2020 as a national cooperation between universities. The project includes six Finnish teacher training units and a network of experts. International cooperation is also being carried out. The project measures include developing pedagogical counseling for special education teachers, trainee and pilot schools and teachers’ professional skills, as well as developing strength-based pedagogy and interaction as an educational continuum.
