nordic teacher conference vaasa

Have you already signed up for the Nordic Conference on Teacher Education in Vaasa, Finland? Today is the deadline for early bird registration! In a panel discussion at the conference, you will have the chance to discover the latest research findings from JustEd researchers from Iceland, Finland, Sweden and Norway. They will address policies and practices in teaching and learning from a Nordic perspective, including classroom interaction and participation, gender equality, inclusion/exclusion and multiplicity, teaching approaches and social justice. The panel is chaired by Anna Slotte (University of Helsinki, Finland), and includes ample opportunities for the public to ask questions and comment the discussed content.

Navigating through school and into the future
One of the keynote speakers at the conference is professor Lisbeth Lundahl, a JustEd researcher at the University of Umeå. She will be addressing urgent policy matters in all Nordic countries, such as facilitating young people´s transitions from school to the labour market and higher education. Young people without upper secondary education qualifications run increased risks of low income, un­employment, social marginalisation and lowered well-being. School failure and school dropout are not only costly for the individual, but for the whole society.
