TO INN – From tradition to innovation in teacher training institutions


The interuniversity TO-INN Programme adopts a systemic approach to ensure qaulity in HEI programmes for trainee educators. It does this by prioritizing the development of programmes with socially and professionally relevant teaching content that encourage trainee educators to play an active role in their learning and make institutions more innovative in policymaking.

Taking Spanish as it common language, TO-INN aims to promote well-fundamented changes in university training programmes by creating a virtual platform for collaborative work and learning. This platform will be used to revise curricula structures and frameworks, develop teaching and learning strategies and create a network for HEIs to ensure relevance in curricula content and promote the use of policies tailored to specific social contexts.

The Programmme is organized along four axes:

  1. Culture and Tradition;
  2. Citizenship and Participation;
  3. Social Cohesion: gender and minorities;
  4. Digital Culture.
