TIE - Towards Interdisciplinary Education is a comprehensive educational program that offers both teacher training and interdisciplinary learning projects for the K-12 education levels.
From August to October 2022, 32 university teachers from Hanoi Metropolitan University, Sai Gon University, and Quang Ngai College participated in the TIE master teacher training course through virtual platforms. Hosted by TIE lead teacher, Iida-Maria Peltomaa and associate trainer Aki, the course provided learners with up-to-date knowledge about the inspiring Finnish interdisciplinary learning approach. They were challenged with diverse activities to understand the approach and apply it in local teaching. As part of the training, teachers are finally able to create engaging interdisciplinary learning projects for K-12 students in groups or individually. The learner group was comprised of main doctors and masters in education who have extensive knowledge and experience in learning. What makes us proud is that we have received many positive feedback about the course. Doctor Phan Hong The from HMU said "I am satisfied with logical lectures back by science." or Doctor Nguyen Thi Bang also from HMU shared "I especially like the assessment part when we as learners got feedback from trainers and other learners during the course. When you give both positive and negative feedback to others, it both helps you to learn the good things of your peers but also for them to learn from your perspectives."

This first master teacher training course lies under the strategic cooperation between WCF and CETSTR (Center for Higher Education Technology - Science Transfer - Research) to enhance Vietnamese university teachers and K-12 teachers in interdisciplinary teaching to meet up with the urgent requirements of the New Vietnam National Core Curriculum 2018.
