DITE - Diverse Internationalisation of Teacher Education

Cooperation partnerships in higher education 2021-1-PL01-KA220-HED-000031129

EN Co-Funded by the EU_POS


Teacher Education (TE) in universities has remained one of the least internationalised subjects in higher education. Yet, teachers are expected to educate future generations to become global citizens. In other words, students of teacher education are so far ill-equipped to transform their prospective pupils into individuals with a global mindset.


DITE focuses on the element of internationalisation to increase capabilities of future teachers by sensitising TE students to international perspectives. We know from the Erasmus Impact Study 2014 and various follow-up studies that mobility is not the solution if we want a large percentage of students (90%+) to be reached by internationalisation. Therefore, DITE relies on internationalisation at home (IaH) to develop a model of globalised teacher education through diverse internationalisation with a focus on students becoming teachers in upper secondary education.


We are going to learn about the status quo of the internationalisation of teacher education in our countries. Gathered information will become a basis for the series of trainings for the academic teachers who teach students of teacher education and for students as well. We are going to present a model and guidelines for implementing DITE in other insitutions. We are aiming at creating a network of organisations from within and outside the consortium. This DITE network will build on dissemination efforts and ensure long-term sustainability by keeping the DITE spirit alive.


A project consortium is created by 6 institutions focused on different aspects of internationalisation of higher education: University of Szczecin, Poland (a project leader) and Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland, University of Porto, Portugal, Rovira i Virgili University, Spain, Global Impact Institute, Czech Republic and SGroup – Universities in Europe.
