2016 theme: Courage and Sensitivity

You need courage to maintain the touch with your own thoughts and opinions, express and stand up for them in the ambiguous freedom of speech. At the same time you need sensitivity and emotional intelligence to listen to and understand others. Not to forget the sensitivity to increase your self-awareness and to recognize the needs of your and others’ well-being. The world with diversity and intercultural transitions make these skills increasingly important.

We are proudly and happily announcing that the 5th International Summer School organized by Teacher Education College of JAMK University of Applied Sciences will take place June 6-10, 2016.

In our Summer School you will explore and reflect creativity and learning as well as increase your internationalization competences. We want to be flexible and open, so creativity can mean using arts in education, but also exploring new teaching/learning/counseling/guidance methods, ideas, concepts etc. The more specific theme for this year will be published during the autumn 2015.

The student will be able to use creativity and creative methods in facilitating learning. He/she also reflects and improves skills to work in multicultural group. Learning methods are creative, participatory and action-based. Workshop instructors are mostly international.

This blog will be updated during the year. Meanwhile please check out what happended in previous Summer School 2015.

Let’s keep in touch!
