The course is designed in keeping in mind the workload of the teachers. It is based on micro learning and a close connection between the theory and practice. The participant will study small bites of theory and the course guides him/her directly to put the lessons learned into practice. From the first day the participant will be able to take the learned content to their own classroom and practice the skills with their own class. This will benefit not only the teacher but the school and the children immediately.
After completion of the program the participant is rewarded with a certificate from the University of Helsinki Center for Continuing Education HY+
