Short and long-term teaching mobilities
From 2 - 31 March 2015 coordinating school "Miniemeninstituut" organized its first international job shadowing mobility.
Teachers from 5 different European partner schools met in Leuven to learn from each other and pass on good practices, headmasters as well as coordinators and teachers.
Pupils also benefited from this international teaching mobility as they got guest lessons (some of them in English) taught by the visiting teachers: geography, history, informatics, English, German...
Below you will soon be able to read the reports of all participants to the Leuven teaching mobility.

Joint-staff training mobility in Potsdam
From 7-19 March 2016 our colleagues from Einsteingymnasium in Potsdam hosted teacher delegations from Ireland, Norway, Slovenia, Italy and Belgium for a short-term teaching mobility. We had workshops to share good teaching practices, learn about each other's pedagogical systems and the inclusion of ICT into our lessons thanks to Microsoft, our project partner.
Long-term teaching mobility in Potsdam
Strip to Identity is multi-layered: pupils work on comic books in the class room, do project work on traditions, legends, local stories and eventually identity. Another layer is the possibility to go abroad and experience the partner schools from the inside: e.g. a 2-week job mobility to Ireland, a 1-month mobility to Norway, a 2-month mobility to Italy and an 11-month mobility to Potsdam’s Einsteingymnasium, Germany. Curious to know what Dirk Staf, language teacher and Strip to Identity project coordinator will be doing during his long-term teaching mobility in Potsdam? Regular blog reports are available here or you can find them directly through these links: August report | September report | October report. He also shares his Whatsapp German "Landeskunde" corner, which he uses to send his students in Belgium some authentic puns, jokes, slogans as a fun way to learn German.
