Erasmus Scholarship to Jamk University

Dr Nadia Touba went on an Erasmus scholarship to Jamk University in Finland during the last week of April 2018. This was to become familiar with the teacher education program followed by the university which is one of the highest ranking in Finland. It is noted that Finland education ranks as one of the best in the world. The trip included several high level meetings with professors and staff. In addition, there was time to attend sessions and workshops. The focus was on innovative teaching, assessment techniques, training of special needs teachers, technology in teacher training and practical training of student teachers. It is hoped that the experience will impact the Pharos University teacher training programs.
