Helsingin Yliopisto UHelsinki
The Department of Teacher Education is a multidisciplinary institution of education and intellectual regeneration, and a builder and forerunner of the future. Growing up to shoulder responsibility on the global scale provides the wider framework for the Department’s activities. The Department of Teacher Education in Helsinki is the largest and, with regard to its syllabus, the most versatile unit providing teacher education in Finland. It actively promotes the well‐being of the nation, equality and an equitable society. The Department of Teacher Education aims to consolidate its position among the world’s leading teacher education and pedagogical research units. The Department of Teacher Education is also internationally attractive. As a result of Finland’s success in PISA surveys, Finnish teacher education has been evaluated as one of the key factors in good learning outcomes. Student and staff mobility is supported by international exchange programmes and resources are increasingly invested in teaching taking place in English. One of the criteria of quality of this work can be seen from the PISA‐results of Finland.
