Arctic Teacher Education for Social Justice and Equality

Project Details


The Arctic universities University of Lapland, University of Oulu, Luleå University of Technology, Umeå University, and UiT The Arctic University of Norway (the Arctic Five) contribute to better understanding of the contextual and cultural issues of the Nordic educational features via engagement with local communities, indigenous and minority populations, and through institutional and research collaborations. The co-operation in the field of teacher education is part of the UArctic Thematic Network Arctic Teacher Education in Social Justice and Equality activities, and strategic Arctic Five co-operation with Nordic Arctic cities and universities.

The network objectives are:

- building a concept for collaboration in teacher education, as part of the global Arctic context
- mapping the expertise of each partner institution
- sharing the expertise and best practices
- transferring the knowledge between partner collaboration and curricula

Long-term goal is to establish a virtual resource centre and curriculum development towards common Nordic Master programme.
