"The highlights of Finnish Education" course was well organized and structured; the staff of professional and expert teachers explained the contents in deapht; they proposed to the participants team working and exercises using the metodolgies used by teachers in Finland (cooperative work, project based team working, problem solving etc.). I appreciated the excersised proposed a lot.The staff of the course was actually welcoming and attentive to the needs of the trainees. They took us to visit two schools in Tampere and this experience was very interesting too. Thanks to the activities proposed by the trainers the participants had the opportunity to share their own teaching experiences and a very friendly atmosphere was created between colleagues.
