What will you learn?
The Summer School curriculum bases on Finnish national core curriculum. The pedagogical approach is holistic and student-centered. You will take a part to the interactive and inspiring learning sessions. We will focus on phenomenon-based teaching and learning, a move away from subjects and towards inter-disciplinary topics. HEAT Summer School is like a typical Finnish Camp School which aim is also to strengthen co-operational and communicational skills in the classroom. You will be able to learn by doing and sharing not only with the students but also with the local experienced teachers.
The Summer School opens for you an opportunity to share ideas, knowledge and local practices, which are ethically sustainable and culturally sensitive, and could be transferred from culture to another.
