International Research Report
The aim of the project is to effectively implement internationalization and the teaching of new skills in secondary schools curricula. The focus is on providing teacher education to enable teachers to teach new skills to their pupils. Therefore, toolkit products for teachers, such as teaching and working material will be developed to enable teachers to teach internationalization. The international research report is a first step into this direction. Before we started developing materials for teachers to teach internationalisation, we needed to know more about their specific needs. Therefore we started a research concluding the results in an international research report. Based on the outcomes of the research the report provides recommendations for the development of the products.
How did the project partners proceed:
1. Each partner did a research with teachers and teacher trainees in the own institution and wrote a national research report on the results. These results were provided to the leader for the research.
2. The results of each national report were reviewed by all partners. The research lead analysed all the partner reports and wrote an international research report on the results of the analysis.
3. The results of the international research report were presented in a project meeting with all partners.
4. The partners provided feedback on the international research report.
5. Following the feedback of all partners, the international research report was revised and after approval of all partner provided to stakeholders.
Target groups are the institutes of the consortium. They will provide input for workshop and pilots, national and/or international networks, interested trainers (mailing list).
The International Research Report is based on the results of the first national report and provides an analysis of the current situation. Moreover it is an overview of initiatives to join European/International educational programs like ELOS and Unesco Edu. The report will contain several chapters, such as: Current situation of internationalization in the educational programme; use of programmes like CFEC, EIO, Unesco Edu; best practices; current teaching method; proposals for the design of the products; European grant programs relevant for LLL and secondary education. In the conclusions the report provides a
