Better World through Better Education

The Diploma in Innovation in Education program is co-organized together with the University of Helsinki, (HY+) Centre for Continuing Education.

The ability to measure innovation is essential to an improvement strategy in education. Knowing whether, and how much, practices are changing within classrooms and educational organisations, how teachers develop and use their pedagogical resources, and to what extent change can be linked to improvements would provide a substantial increase in the international education knowledge base (OECD, 2014).

Innovation in Education is a program for pedagogical leaders as well as policy makers and NGOs seeking to integrate cutting-edge educational practices into their learning environment and business processes. It contributes to the development of new skills and competencies in the educational sector at national, organizational and personal levels.
