About the course
The SAIL for Teachers is an annual course organized by the BUP Centre for Finland at Åbo Akademi University and the Baltic University Programme secretariat at Uppsala University, conducted on-board the Tall Ship Fryderyk Chopin
. The aim of the course is to gather teachers within the Baltic University Programme network, but we also invite Teachers from other institutions – in case of available places – that are active and interested in sustainable development. The course is based on all participating teachers’ competencies and experiences - we count on your active influence on the content of the course programme and discussions on-board.
There are 30 places available on the course. Teachers from different countries, cultures, universities, and disciplines will meet and exchange knowledge, share experiences, learn and teach, develop their competencies, work together, sail the ship, and experience theirs’ life’s adventure. This year we will sail across the Biscay, far from stress, internet and telephone connection. This environment cannot fail to inspire and empower!
