ISIT Project

ISIT Project

The ISIT project addresses two of the crucial needs defined by the Education and Training Benchmarks for 2020 and by the High Level Group of Experts on Literacy (HLGEL 2012):

  1. the problem of low literacy skills in many European countries
  2. the unsatisfying status of teachers' continuous professional development (CPD) in the EU.

Thus ISIT pursues two goals:

  1. a specific goal: training 30 teacher educators from 3 European countries in content area literacy (CAL)
  2. a general, comparative goal: analysing good examples of how to implement innovations into different national structures of CPD.


Coordination: Prof. Dr. Christine Garbe, University of Cologne (Germany)
Participation: 11 Institutions from 8 European Countries
Project’s duration: 12 months (12/2103 - 11/2014)
