LOCALIZING THE FINNISH MODEL FOR CHINA: DEVELOPING STUDENT-CENTRED PEDAGOGY TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
In Finland, future teachers studying in universities are educated with student-centred approaches in order to be more capable of implementing student-centred approaches in their own classrooms. With strong support from scientific research, Finnish universities are taking a leading role in implementing student-centred approaches. Specifically, the curriculum for teacher education is no longer limited to the teacher-directed approaches, but adopts many collaborative approaches including group work, collaborative learning, collaborative writing, presentation, seminar, webinar, student self-evaluation and peer-evaluation and learning diaries etc.
This event will draw on the use of student-centred pedagogy in Finland and China. It will focus on the specific characteristics of Finnish teacher education and the student-centred focus of the teacher education curriculum. It will outline the essential components of Finnish teacher education. Then discussion will be focused on know-how on localzating it in China.
