What is IPED?
The goal of the IPED project is to review and identify the Sámi and Indigenous pedagogy research needs at northern teacher education contexts and to support new research areas’ development. The project is executed through three workshops. The workshops serve both educational and informative purposes, enabling researchers to transmit their knowledge in ways that are tailored towards a target public.
The project is part of activities of UArctic Thematic Network on Teacher Education.
