Olive project develops teacher education in universities in Palestine. The four year project (2020-2024) is led by the University of Helsinki and funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (coordinated by the Finnish National Agency For Education). The far-reaching impact is an improved quality of compulsory basic education in Palestine that is achieved through narrowing down the digital divide gap and by enhancing access to knowledge for all. Educational challenges are tackled by outputs focusing on creating new on-line learning environments, developing pedagogical approaches, renewing bachelor’s programmes and teacher education diploma, supporting educational leadership and acting in dialogue with educational governance in Palestine. The specific outcome of this project is the comprehensive transformation of teacher education that equips teacher students with skills to exploit modern technologies and online learning tools.
