Supporting teacher education in Uruguay
The UPM Foundation in Uruguay supports in-service training of teachers in Río Negro Department to update and strengthen their pedagogical skills.
“So far, we have discussed various topics and methods of evaluating pupils. We have also practiced new teaching methods and learned to organize students’ learning in a new way,” says history teacher Pablo Rohner, one of 28 participants in the training programme.
“In addition to practical tips, the course has provided new theoretical skills I can apply to my everyday work,” says history teacher Pablo Rohner.
Rohner works in the village of Nuevo Berlín, which has a population of about 2,500. The local school has roughly 200 pupils. Participants in the two-year training programme teach their normal classes from Monday to Friday, and then travel to Fray Bentos once a month to participate in weekend workshops.
