Teacher well-being plays a key role in the Finnish education system. We think that innovative teaching methods are reached when teachers themselves have opportunities for active and collaborative learning.
Innopeda® for Teachers offers tools and methods to meet the standards of new pedagogical culture, innovation competences, assessment and teacher well-being.
