WEBINARS are kept by top Finnish experts. In the presentations, they will focus on two topical themes within Finnish ECE: Language-rich environment and Preschool-School transition. During the webinar, the participants will hear, what principles are seen as important considering these themes and how they are implemented at a practical level.
Discussions will continue in WORKSHOPS. The participants will be in active interaction with each other and the host. In addition, participants are encouraged to reflect Finnish viewpoints to their own system through joint discussions. What are the similarities? Or biggest differences? What could be adopted as such? How could we utilize the know-how internationally in a more effective way?
