The TeachersMOD Training Handbook for Kurdish academics of Basic Education

Through the trainings foreseen by the project, the objective is to transfer knowledge in strict relation with the realization of the Action Plan in each Kurdish University. The topics of the trainings in Europe have been imagined and achieved with a general perspective, combining theory and practice, but with the specific awareness to provide a general framework. During the overall training planning phase, a particular attention was dedicated to give the trainees more tools to enhancing the capacity of self-training and self-learning.

  • Field visits in Europe at the University of Pavia, the University of Granada and the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro
