Turku University of Applied Sciences and Brazil have been strengthening their cooperation in education during the last few years. There is a growing interest among the Brazilian higher education institutions in the learning concepts and methods developed at TUAS that highlight innovation competences. Innopeda® will also be in the spotlight during the most recent visit by the TUAS delegation to Brazil.
Executive Lecturer and Senior Advisor in Innovation Pedagogy Liisa Kairisto-Mertanen, Senior Lecturer and e-Learning Specialist Marjo Joshi and TUAS Brazilian specialist Juliana Amaral-Piispa from Turku University of Applied Sciences are touring Brazil during 23 March–4 April 2019.

During the visit, Liisa Kairisto-Mertanen will also be one of the keynote speakers at the Brazilian Congress of Educational Management – GEduc 2019 in São Paolo.
