Becoming a professional teacher means being capable of resolving specific educational issues and being active in education development in collaboration with others. This means that the teacher must be innovative in his/her daily practice. Furthermore, the teacher must encourage the pupils to become innovative citizens, which requires the teacher not only to be innovative in his/her teaching, but also to understand the didactics of innovation and to guide innovative learning processes.
The Module takes its starting point in the following questions:
- What is innovation in teaching and in a welfare perspective?
- How and why should pupils develop innovative competence?
- How can innovative competence be measured?
