Your local organizer will take these matters into consideration to form the best possible group with different kinds of experience and strengths to go to Denmark.
Before the Teacher Training Event in Denmark all participating teachers will attend an online Teacher Training Event. This will set the scene for the whole training and what is expected from you – both as a teacher participating in the Teacher Training Event in Denmark and as a teacher who will not attend the Teacher Training Event in Denmark.
In January 2020 all teachers in the V-PAL Teacher Training will meet only to share experiences, get advices from Nicolai Seest (the teacher in producing the Peer Practice videos) etc.
During the V-PAL Teacher Training you will get access to online videos giving advice on how to make the videos. Locally you will work in buddy pairs to produce videos.
You have to be willing to use the indicated time (see…..) though.
