Project in brief
CLIMATE (Contextual Learning in Management and Teaching) is a Comenius Multilateral project under the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission.
If you are a teacher trainer, a school manager, head of department or teacher / school advisor, CLIMATE can provide you with the concepts, instruments and strategies to make schools and work units within schools, better and more productive work & learning environments for teachers. Within this project we’ve investigated the relationship between characteristics of the work environment, learning processes within teams and the quality of their work. We chose to measure and describe ‘quality’ within an area of performance that is relevant for teachers all over Europe: dealing with diversity among students. Therefore – as a side effect - CLIMATE also provides descriptions of practice illustrating how teacher teams’ knowledge productivity in dealing with diversity can be raised.
