Welcome to the International Teachers Programme © hosted by HEC Paris!
Being an educator is not just about sharing knowledge; it is about making sure that learners truly integrate this knowledge. This requires research, imagination, and the best possible conditions for them to take the lessons on board in a dynamic way. An understanding of educational situations certainly can be acquired with experience, but experience alone is rarely a guarantee of success in the classroom. The professionalization of teachers is a process which involves the acquisition of knowledge, expertise and a strong level of self-assurance in adult learning situations; all are crucial requirements which can no longer be ignored.
HEC Paris is honored to host the ITP - International Teachers Programme © in 2012 and 2013. Recognized as the premier business school in Europe and one of the top worldwide by the Financial Times, HEC Paris has been a leader in business education for well over a century.
We can build on a highly-interactive learning community with internationally renowned faculty members, practitioners and more than 44,000 alumni drawn from around the world.
In these up-coming ITP editions, participants will learn how to create and to apply effective learning situations for the successful transmission of knowledge, skills and attitudes to learners with a variety of different knowledge levels, expectations and mindsets. They will also be involved in a personalized development program of support for them and for their teaching performance.
We look forward to meeting you in France on both our HEC locations in Paris and Jouy-en-Josas for what should be a unique learning experience!
