Conclusion of the multiplier training course
“School Professionalisation with Vignettes”

In an intensive seminar at the University College of Teacher Education Vienna in cooperation with the University of Vienna, the participants were trained by means of vignettes to take a different “learning-side” look at learning and teaching, but also at possibilities of research in schools and other educational institutions. With concise examples, previous habits of perception of learning, teaching and research were broken in order to perceive them in a new and different way.
