Profile of participants

The seminar is open to participants within the fields of HE and SE education; e.g. international coordinators, developers, decision makers, student representatives and lecturers in higher education institutions offering teacher education, and developers and representatives of primary and secondary education. The participants should be interested in the topic of the seminar and willing to develop an Erasmus+ partnership if the opportunity rises. The participants are neither required to have an experience of Erasmus+ projects nor to have a project idea at this point, although both would be welcomed.

Themes and goals of the event

The main theme of the event is the importance of international experience in the education of teachers. The teachers of the future have a pivotal role in educating children on the basis of equality, aiming for objectives such as sustainability, peace, human rights, global awareness and respect for different cultures. For that reason, it is important for teacher education students to have the opportunity to take some part of their studies and training abroad, as such experience will broaden their horizon and have a positive impact on their intercultural competence. The main goal is to seek measures in order to boost participation numbers of teacher education students in mobility. The participants of the seminar will be invited to share their own practices and experiences regarding the subject, and will furthermore be encouraged to consider possible partnerships in the future.

Expected results

Erasmus+ should give everybody the opportunity to finish some of their studies abroad. For teacher education students it is arguably even more important to get the taste of the life in a different country, as they will in return be better equipped to educate the future generations in diverse and everchanging societies. The expected results of the seminar is to share ideas and create good practices for developing the future of mobility in teacher education, and to create networking and/or partnerships on the subject that might result in future Erasmus+ applications.
