Expanding your professional development opportunities

Finding adequate time and resources for ongoing professional development is a challenge for any vocation, but particularly for teachers. September is a good time to check the upcoming Teacher Academy free online courses, and choose the ones that best suit your needs and interests. If your school is interested in preparing an application for funding under the Erasmus+ programme, we recommend that you pre-register for the Erasmus+ funding opportunities for schools MOOC, which will open on 30 October, and get inspired by concrete examples of projects in school education, tips on preparing a competitive proposal and more. We also invite you to go through our latest tutorial to consider different ideas and training opportunities, including where teachers can benefit from online peer-exchange.


Poll on school libraries

Do you think that school libraries are becoming increasingly irrelevant in a digital age? Or is the need for school libraries and the services provided by librarians even greater now than before? Take this poll by 30 September to share your opinion! The poll is available in 23 languages; analytical results will be published on School Education Gateway.


Erasmus+ Project Results platform

Descriptions, results and contact information of all projects funded under the Erasmus+ programme can now be found in one place, the Erasmus+ Project Results platform! Gain inspiration from the pool of good practices and success stories, i.e. projects that distinguished themselves in terms of policy relevance, communication potential, impact or design. Search by typing keywords in the search box or use the advanced search options to find the most interesting school cooperation projects in your city, region or country. Updated on a daily basis, the platform is an ever-growing resource of information. It includes more than 90.0000 projects funded in the field of education, training, youth and sport. Projects funded under predecessor programmes are also available. 


Education Talks: New ways of learning

“If we are training them (students) for the past, we are not making them a favour, so we have to invest collectively in changing our system.” In this interview François Taddei, principal investigator at the Robustness and Evolvability of Life research laboratory at INSERM and co-founder of the Centre for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI), shares his views on the education research and how teachers can become researchers themselves.
