Principals of technical-professional schools, Language and Mathematics teachers and school coexistence teams from all regions of Chile participated in the first face-to-face “Learning Session” of the MueveTP Collaborative Networks for Continuous Improvement.
The objective of this program is to improve the interaction between teachers and students in the first and second year, focusing on Language and Mathematics, strengthen the teaching-learning process and promote the development of socio-emotional skills based on collaborative work, factors that influence the expectations of young people and their eventual decision to continue their studies once they graduate from the fourth year of secondary school.
During the activity, which included the active participation of two strategic partners for MueveTP, Centre UC and the Socioemotional Skills Laboratory, attendees were able to discuss common problems and challenges facing their schools and those of their peers, to jointly seek solutions and new strategies that allow teaching teams to improve their teaching practices, while in the case of students learn more and better.
The director of the Liceo Bicentenario Arturo Alessandri Palma de Providencia, René Sporman, explained that “the Collaborative Networks for Continuous Improvement led by MueveTP are aligned with the educational project of our school, have been a great contribution for the teachers who have participated and we hope to extend this new knowledge to all the teachers of our school”.
Meanwhile, the technical head of the Fernando Binvignat Marín High School in Coquimbo, Ana Chepillo, said that “sharing experiences with other technical-professional high schools in Chile, with different contexts and realities, has been a very enriching experience to improve the teaching process within the schools. We hope that this will soon be reflected in the results of our students.
Currently, 20 schools from all regions of the country participate in the Collaborative Networks for Continuous Improvement. By 2022, 20 new establishments will be added to continue advancing in promoting access to higher education and the life trajectories of thousands of young people.
