Towards a European Syllabus
in Teacher Education
Teachers across Europe are increasingly confronted with global, societal challenges in their classrooms, i.e. sustainability, challenges to democratic education and active citizenship, gender sensitivity, multilingualism and diversity as well as the digitalization of learning spaces.
The inclusion of these topics in teacher education is therefore vital to ensure education equity and provide high-quality learning opportunities to children, teenagers and young adults across the European Union. The project “TESTEd” responds to this need with the development of an interdisciplinary European Syllabus providing an international perspective on global teaching challenges, the formation of European communities of practice in initial and in-service teacher education and the advancement of virtual and physical mobility in teacher education.
