Teach, Learn and Quality
IMPROVE YOUR SCHOOL BY WORKING ON EDUCATIONAL QUALITY In a fast changing world, society relies on the important role of education and schools. And indeed there are a lot of exciting challenges on the horizon such as: developing basic skills, literacy and key competences, foster employability, socio-educational and personal development, enhance the participation in civic and social life; develop thinking skills, language skills, creativity and an entrepreneurial mindset. A lot of Ministries of Education, education authorities, schools or educational organisations invest heavily in the continuous development of their quality. They want to strengthen the profiles of the teaching professions, including in particular teachers, school leaders and teacher educators, for example by enhancing teachers’ education and professional development and linking its different phases; facilitating teacher mobility; supporting teachers in developing innovative teaching and assessment methods; strengthening leadership in education, including distributed leadership and teacher leadership. But how do we cope with this all? The course wants to contribute to the empowerment of schools, training centres and adult education institutions as learning organisations. The course provides knowledge, methodology, insights and skills needed to achieve this goal. The course tries to reveal the importance of involving the school staff and school team in the implementation of the schools’ educational quality. This approach is quite unique as those aspects are intertwined and interdependent. Without the full participation of all members of the school team, no educational quality can be achieved. At the same time, it focuses on internal strategies to make the quality management plan operational.
