Shared Practice in Teacher Education (SPriTE)


It is a joint project between european universities and secondary schools whose main aim is to design and pilot both the theoretical framework and the tools that are required in order to supervise the teaching practices that the future students in a Joint Master in Teacher Education (JoMiTE) would carry out both at home and at a host school abroad. In order to ensure that intercultural exchanges enrich the internationalisation of the school practices undertaken by student-teachers, the supervision model put forward in the project is being conducted in joint collaboration by university tutors, school  mentors and students in both the home and the host institutions.

In this project we want to develop four products: 1) a shared list of competences that potential secondary teachers should develop, 2) a pedagogical framework for the supervision of student-teachers who will do their school practice both in their home country and abroad, 3) a pedagogical framework for working with an electronic portfolio as a tool for supervision and assessment and 4) an online cultural background course, which will prepare student-teachers for their teaching practice abroad.
