The Finnish-Uruguayan partnership aims at joint curriculum development and intensive training in the STEAM approach to teacher education at the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), the University of Jyväskylä (JYU) from Finland and the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of the University of Uruguay (FCA-UDE) from Uruguay. In order to achieve its objectives, the project organises the following activities

  1. Curriculum development – The partner universities will co-design, develop and pilot curricula for STEAM education in the context of teacher training.
  2. Joint intensive faculty training and development – The project will provide STEAM-related training and professional development opportunities for faculty members from partner institutions through joint workshops and seminars, in both face-to-face and hybrid formats.

The expected outcomes are jointly developed curricula for STEAM studies, improved pedagogical skills of teacher trainers in STEAM, shared pedagogical resources for further Finnish-Uruguayan cooperation such as course descriptions, study materials and up-to-date references on STEAM research.
