Ways to get involved in the ITELab


ITELab fosters innovation and knowledge exchange in Initial Teacher Education (ITE) between universities, companies and policymakers. All are welcome to join ITELab as unfunded Associate Partners.


Why join? Benefit by joining this wide and unique, network of stakeholders from across Europe and beyond, interested in innovation, and joined by a common interest of  developing the digital pedagogical competences of tomorrow's teachers.

Follow and contribute to the ITE Forum discussions. The ITE Forum provides an online platform to  exchange knowledge and gain insights from the work within the project itself, and with linked partners and projects, relating to schools and the teaching profession, together with universities and future teachers. The ITE Forum will be sustained as a permanent network under the independently funded European Schoolnet Future Classroom Lab initiative.


Follow and participate in the pilots of new innovative approaches for universities in the training of student teachers, including new flexible teaching module frameworks and  a student teacher MOOC (all materials are Open Educational Resources). Exchange  ideas with other universities, support student teachers as they collaborate with peers from across Europe, and beyond, initiating their Professional Learning Network (PLN).
