The new Finnish National Core Curriculum introduces a concept of multi-disciplinary learning module (MDLM). The idea of multi-disciplinary learning module is strongly related to the current international discussion on developing schools as learning communities that enhance the 21st century skills rather than content knowledge, and emphasises the student participation, autonomy and activeness in learning. However, the changes made in the policy level do not self-evidently transform into teacher level implementation. In order to support teachers’ professional learning, a deeper understanding of how practices are enacted in schools and factors that help or hinder change is necessary. In this presentation, I will provide information about the concept of multi-disciplinary learning modules implemented in Finland and elaborate the question: How to utilize MDLM implementation process as possibility of teacher professional learning? All Welcome. Free Entry. No booking necessary. Please disseminate widely. Organisers: Dr Andrea English and Aline Nardo For Questions contact: andrea.english@ed.ac.uk Sponsored by The Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, Edinburgh Branch and the Philosophy of Education Research Group, MHSE
