Aim of the group


Teacher education is highly important for a future qualified workforce and an open minded, literate society. However, teacher education is highly diverse within Europe, even within some European countries. In addition, there is some but not much research about successful approaches in subject-matter teacher education. Therefore, the leading question for this workpackage should be: Is it possible to identify common and promising goals, processes and indicators for a successful and sustainable teacher education?


The first task to fulfil will be the identification of structures, contents, activities and assessment principles of teacher education study courses in different countries. Data will be collected by a questionnaire which should be developed during a first meeting. Already existing studies such as former ECTN-activities and similar projects will be considered. Based on the data collection, common goals, contents and activities as well as assessment procedures will be identified in a second meeting and incorporated into a fist document of promising European teacher education modules. This document will then be discussed and revised. In parallel, the exchange with the Label Committee should start to negotiate possibilities and procedures of labelling modules as “European Teacher Education Modules”.
