Topic 2 - Initial Teacher Education

Back to Home

Implementing methodologies for teachers' assessment and evaluation, although very useful, is not the only way to ensure they excel in their performance. In fact, it is highly recommendable to always pair evaluation methodologies with further initiatives that fully support the professional development of STEM educators.

For that matter, Initial Teacher Education and Continuing Professional Development are essential. By offering different training opportunities, STEM educators will be able to develop their pedagogical skills and to continuously grow their expertise in innovative technologies and ICT for educational purposes, among other training outcomes. Additionally, by engaging in formal or informal professional networks, teachers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and good practices with like-minded peers.

Open questions

  1. Did you receive any sort of Initial Teacher Education (formal or informal) when you first started working as a teacher?
  2. In your opinion, are there enough opportunities in terms of Continuing Professional Development in your country? Are you following any training of the sort, at the moment?
  3. Can you think of any other practices that could help teachers grow professionally?
  4. Are you a member of any formal or informal professional network? Has it been beneficial for you? In which way?

Hello Rodostina,
In Israel teacher must have eah year 30-60 hours of professional development courses. It might be courses that refers to scientifi contect or to pedagogical issues. Todat courses that involve ICT or teaching with iPADS are very popular among teachers.
Best regards,
Stella

I think - saddly - that in my country the teachers´s work is not valued. You are a teacher of public or you are a teacher of concerted institution, no matter. Politicians only care appear in the papers when a prize is won (but it is not for the effort of the politicians but by the teachers only). Belonging to an international community of teachers does offers opportunities to improve.

Dear Radostina,

Every year each teacher has to attend for at least one of the various in-service Professional Learning courses organised by the Department of Education. All teachers attending the 3 days Professional Learning sessions are provided by a high quality education for all by Education Officers.

Thanks & Regards

Hi, there are strong requerments to teachers in Estonia: 50-55 h per year. Estonian universities offers a lot of cources, MOOC. Also we have organisations like HITSA - it offers professional development  in IT. I am trainer in HITSA also. I think Estonian teachers have a lot of opportunities for professional development. I have finished succesfully some MOOC from EuropeanSchoolNet Academy. MOOC are very useful.
