About the project
Reserved Perspectives and Intercultural Dialogues: Qualification of Bulgarian Language and Literature Teachers= Cross-Border Bulgarian Studies
This site and all that it contains is made within the project with reference No 2020-1-BG01-KA204-078972 under the Centre for Development of Human Resources on Key Activity 2 - Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, KA204 - Strategic Partnerships for adult education.
Adult education and lifelong learning are not only important directives of the European Commission, but also a growing need. In a fast-changing world in which many people face up with more and more challenges of new technologies, the idea of a lifelong profession seems no longer applicable. This project aims to correspond to this line of development and to concentrate on requalification of people who want to become teachers in Bulgarian language and literature. The focus is not accidental - in recent years there is a severe shortage of teachers, and the profession is becoming more promising. The current project seeks to answer these needs and increased interest.
Considering the composition of the project team, the requalification will have two sides: requalification of teachers in our country, and also requalification of people who are citizens of foreign countries, but want to find their profession in this field and become Bulgarian language and literature teachers in lots of Bulgarian (mostly weekend) schools abroad. In the first group, the project will aim at supporting the requalification of teachers from different fields (philosophy, geography, but also non-humanitarian disciplines) into teachers in Bulgarian language and literature. As university lecturers, we know that this practice has been widespread in recent years and there is a keen interest in such requalification. In order to supplement and enrich the selection of requalification courses offered at Sofia University (in particular in the Faculty of Slavic Studies), we are going to create set of distance e-courses that will optimize the training of participants.
