“I find that teaching and the students keep life going, and I would never accept any position in which somebody has invented a happy situation for me where I don't have to teach. Never."
Richard P. Feynman, Professor of Theoretical Physics
California Institute of Technology, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics in 1965
The EU considers the continuous advancement of education and training to be of profound importance. Widespread access to quality education and training is a driver of economic growth, social cohesion, research, and innovation - and dramatically increases citizens' prospects for personal development.
Educators are arguably the most important members of our society. They give children purpose, set them up for success as citizens of our world, and inspire in them a drive to do well and succeed in life. Our students are the leaders of tomorrow, and teachers/educators are the coaches to prepare a child to be ready for their future.
The ATHENA pedagogical model promotes student-centered curricula. This pedagogical model supports excellence in teaching and supports actions to innovate within the consortium our pedagogy based on the most recent research outcomes.
