Dubai Expo Education Forum
Oulu University Teacher Training School was represented in the Dubai Expo Education Forum on April 12th, 2021.
The on-line event brought together experts in the fields of teacher training, curriculum, well-being, EdTech solutions and artificial intelligence to share their insights, knowledge and guidance in a series of expert interviews, panel discussions and live Q&As.
The event was targeted to all working in the field of education: teachers, principals, school leaders and government officials.
Dr. Raimo Salo from the Oulu University Teacher Training School took part in the panel discussion: Building educational resilience - Creating a culture of well-being and learning through the adoption of new skills.
The panel of education experts explored how schools across Finland and the UAE have responded to the COVID-19 Pandemic, what they had learned from the lockdown restrictions placed on schools, and why Finland favors the hybrid model.
Dr. Salo highlighted the well-tried practicalities evolved in their school during the pandemic as well as shared ideas on how a school can be prepared for similar crisis in the future.
