Focus on the future

In our international class we focus on the 21st century skills

Teachers who are competent in foreign languages | Teachers who think creatively and are open-minded | Teachers who are flexible and team players | Teachers who are problem solvers and decision makers | Digital competent teachers for digital natives in schools | Teachers who are lifelong learners |

Discover it all with lots of outdoor learning!

In the different modules the students discover not only our campus, but also the surroundings.
They plan different excursions all over Belgium with a focus on education.
Furthermore, a full week in the Netherlands is part of the program since we focus on Europe and compare schools, school systems and learning outcomes. Apart from that students participate in online project work with students all over the world.

International class

The International Class ‘More to explore’ unites incoming Erasmus+ students and Flemish students in teacher education. The students participate a 3 or 5 months English program, consisting of the modules ‘More to discover’, ‘More innovation in education’, ‘Survival Dutch’, ‘Digital learning design’, ‘More multilingual education’, ‘More diversity in education’ and ‘More practice’. Flemish students take the course ‘More practice outside Flanders’ instead of ‘More innovation in education’.
