Join us with your colleague to design and implement multidisciplinary learning modules!

Innokas Network arranges during school year 2017-2018 an extensive training program on the design of multidisciplinary learning modules. In the program, each participating teacher team designs a multidisciplinary learning module for their school and implements it during the 2018 Spring term. Students are encouraged to engage in both the design and implementation of the module. The program is facilitated by Innokas Network trainers and experts from the University of Helsinki.

The program launches is November 2017 and comprises of three and half training days. Simultaneous program activities span eight cities, with participants in each city networking with others using digital technology during self-study periods and on training days.

The training is free of charge, but we are not able to support with teacher substitute expenses.
