“TEACHING to be”





“Teaching to Be” is a European Policy Experimentation project initiative. The project aims to support school teachers’ career improvement by exploring innovative professional development practices to foster and improve teachers’ professional wellbeing. The project is led by Ministries of Education from Lithuania, Latvia, Portugal and Slovenia, in cooperation with several universities and teams of experts in teacher education and mental wellbeing from 8 countries: Lithuania, Latvia, Slovenia, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Austria and Norway.
Teachers’ stress and burnout are major concerns all across Europe and worldwide, causing serious challenges to teachers’ health and the school systems. Moreover, increased focus on social and emotional competences across Europe poses new challenges for teachers in maintaining their own wellbeing and delivering effective teaching.
In order to foster teachers’ professional wellbeing and promote practices to support it, the project will develop and examine a set of innovative professional development measures:

  • An Online Course on Teachers’ Professional Wellbeing, which will help develop teachers’ practical skills for sustaining their wellbeing through self-regulated learning;
  • A Participatory Action Research (PAR) Guide for Schools which will help school communities to work together on school issues, improve professional wellbeing and develop new professional skills for teachers and school leaders.

The project will explore how and to what extent these practices affect teacher’s wellbeing indicators and school level factors. A mixed-methods experimental research, combining a quasi-experimental intervention study (QE) and a qualitative Participatory Action Research (PAR) study in schools will be conducted in 8 countries.
Project actions will involve school teachers, school leaders and other school community members. The outcomes of the project will help promote policies for teachers’ professional wellbeing and will support the systemic teaching and learning of Key-competences in schools.
