EDiTE aims to create a closer link between teacher education and the research
arena by promoting engagement with research topics that cross conventional
boundaries between practice, policy and research.
EDiTE aims to strengthen research departments and enhance research capabilities
expertise from the field into a jointly-run course open to candidates from throughout
Europe and the world; thus addressing priorities of innovation
and the European Higher Education Area.
EDiTE aims creating a future step in career
development of young researchers and teaching professionals; stimulating the
recruitment of scientifically qualified
professionals from the world of teaching,
promoting the mobility of professionals
within the EDiTE curriculum development and implementation; as well as in increasing
their chances for professional and scientific access.
The EDiTE will further enable students to develop a critical view on their
own system and provide them with a broader
perspective on teacher education by conducting research in an international
environment, predicated both on intercultural and multilingual content and pedagogy
and on international composition
of students and faculty.
