Teacher Development
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The aim of this training programme is to improve our performance in the challenges we face with regard to inclusion, all day school and intercultural teaching. Inclusion implies the need to respect and integrate the diversity of students within a learning group and a commitment to assign the appropriate share of teaching attention according to needs and abilities. The key components of successful inclusive foreign language teaching are individually tailored tasks and learning strategies. We believe it is essential to base our teaching on the most up to date teaching methods. This also applies to the learning aids our students employ in their individual afternoon study sessions (Lernburo). These learning aids play a vital part in their development and must therefore be state of the art, varied and life-like in order to work effectively and meet our students' needs and interests. To ensure we meet these challenges we would like to send a teacher from our Department of English on a one week training course on methodology in secondary school EFL. The staff at our school have developed a well-established culture of exchanging newly acquired knowledge and ideas, and the participant would automatically share her experience at subsequent internal staff trainings sessions. We would also incorporate these new ideas into the aids we develop for the individual studies. We also believe that a week spent in the UK would broaden our intercultural learning experience and provide a further source of inspiration for our pupils.
