Teaching Practices

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.” Galileu Galilei

The Best Teaching Practices project started in 2008/09 school year, aiming to collect, identify and disclose the best teaching practices used by IST teachers. Has an innovator project within a university context where quality issues are being more valued, the Project is associated with IST Pedagogical Council, QUC – Course Unit Quality System and SiQuIST – IST Internal Quality System. The developed work, as so far, allowed the release of a video with best teachers interviews and a preliminary report on good teaching practices, that with further work will conduct to the first Best Teaching Practices Manual. The developed work has also been published and presented in national and international seminars and conferences and been the main subject of the IST Educational Journeys in 2011.
