Discussion Paper

On the implementation of cross-cutting issues in teacher education

The TESTEd project aims to integrate socially relevant cross-cutting issues in teacher education across Europe. However, systematic challenges and limitations in teacher education and education systems complicate this process. This discussion paper highlights these challenges and showcases, how the TESTEd project tries to solve them.

First, the discussion paper presents the ideas behind the TESTEd project and the development of a European Syllabus in Teacher Education focussing on the implementation of cross-cutting issues. It then shows how the project integrates the Syllabus in initial teacher education. Finally, the discussion paper gives an outlook on the next steps in the TESTEd project, namely the integration of the Syllabus in Continuous Professional Development courses and its extension to good practice examples from teacher education in Europe.

Here, you find a collection of good practice material on cross-cutting issues as Open Educational Resources (OER) that have been developed as part of our project. OER are learning, teaching and research materials in any format and medium that reside in the public domain or are under an open license, that permits no-cost access, re-use, re-purpose, adaptation and redistribution by others (further information: https://www.unesco.org/en/open-educational-resources).

Our OER are freely available for educators and learners to use and adapt to their needs, helping to promote a more open and inclusive education system.
