Publication | 8 years of eNSPIRED: an overview
In this publication, we are looking back at the achievements of the eNSPIRED programme over the past few years. Since 2014, we have been organising workshops, seminars and learning weeks for teacher trainers, educations advisers and (future) teachers with education experts from countries in Africa, Asia and South America. During their internships abroad, we motivate students, teachers and educational advisors to look for interesting teachers practices that can boost Flemish policy and practice on equity in education.
Professional learning communities: sharing knowledge and learning together
On 21 October 2021, eNSPIRED organised a webinar on professional learning communities (PLCs). During this webinar, the results of an international review study were presented by Dong Nguyen and Ellen Boeren of Glasgow University. Nathalie Aziza from VVOB in Rwanda, Paul Mphisa from VVOB in South Africa and Brenda Akite Otika from STiR Education shared inspiring practical stories, each story focusing on a specific aspect of professional learning communities.
Education of the Future: the Impact of International Dialogue
On November 18, we will take a moment to reflect on eight inspiring and enriching years. During a studio broadcast, we will look back with some students and teachers at what we learned and what we will take with us for the future. We also launch a publication and a tool for quality deployment of international learning experiences. Stella Nyanchama Okemwa brings inspiration on decolonization.
