Rating: 0/5

Course overview and aims
Innovation is a key word today in all sectors, especially in education. Teaching is a continuos progress building and it cross generations. In the past schools were a “world apart” from reality of everyday life. Parents were sure that children were at school protected and safe by the school system and the question: what my child will do in the future remained un-ansswered until the end of the secondary school. We will see we will see. Today is different. Reality and school world have to be more linked and innovation has to characterized teacher's method and behaviour.
TICO Training is an innovative structure of an intensive training lasting 5 and a half day which explores innovation in all its aspects. Teaching is Innovation. It's right. Teaching is Communication. This is also right. But also Outdoor Education and in this case we mean, that the windows of classrooms have to be opened to the outside world. Literature on this topic is broad and is filling the web with many articles and websites recollecting tools.
