SUSTAINABILITY OF THE PROJECT “EMPOWERING TEACHERS FOR A STUDENT-CENTRED APPROACH”

Partners of the project “Empowering teachers for a student-centred approach” agreed that the following activities and results should be maintained after the end of the EU funding:

1) The research study has been published in peer-reviewed and professional journals, on the web sites of the participating institutions and on Google Scholar. This enables further use of the project results by all interested in the student-centred approach. The publications are in English, Slovenian, Polish and Lithuanian.

2) We will continue completing the e-handbook with new cases of good practices also after the project has been finished. Till the end of 2017 we gathered 10 new practices and published them on the web sites.

3) The teachers interested in the student-centred approach will publish new articles in different newspapers. Till the end of 2017 the following new articles were published:
