Finland: The World’s Most Innovative Education Model

April 16-25, 2021

The main theme of our nine-day course is: “Finland: An Innovative Education Model”. This program features university workshops, school & other site visits, and wide-ranging dialogue -- the foundational elements of the highly successful Finnish education model. Specifically, this includes an exploration of Finland’s rigorous approach to teacher training; the phenomenon-based learning concept; curriculum development, future schools and learning, modern teaching; and strategic leadership and innovations.

We will examine the diverse, multi-layered and complex local, regional and global processes that shape Finland’s education sector. Our principal goal is to foster a comprehension and appreciation of Finland’s approach. During our ten-day spring course, delegates not only directly interact and enter into dialogue with academics, education consultants and activists, but also make optional visits to world-famous historical sites and museums; attend concerts; and become involved in the hectic everyday life of a modern Scandinavian city.
