Research and development

A developer-school

All Finnish university teacher training schools are developer-schools for universities and thus characterised by their research-oriented nature. As such we offer a platform for mutual development interests and collaborate on joint research, experimentation and development schemes with the University of Eastern Finland and companies with an educational interest. The most common development and collaboration patterns comprise projects of individual employees and various networks and joint projects between our school and the University of Eastern Finland.

Fostering project skills

Part of our strategy is to support teaching staff in the systematic implementation, reporting and publication of their development and experimental projects. In addition, augmenting counselling and project management skills as well as helping employees to streamline their project operations have become one of our professional training interests.
