1. Cooperation between higher education institutions in teaching Finnish or Swedish as a second language: a national collaboration model and an online portal

The content produced and collected by Kielibuusti will be collected under one roof: on the one hand, into a national collaboration network for teaching Finnish/Swedish as a second language, on the other, into a digital online portal, which is set to be launched in 2023.

Sub-project 1 will formulate operational goals for the national collaboration network of higher education institutions, and pilot a collaboration model. Collaboration between higher education institutions is implemented in national and regional seminars and workshops (also organised by other sub-projects), and in the form of collaboratively produced content shared in the online portal.

The online portal will serve four different user groups: students of Finnish/Swedish as a second language, teachers of Finnish/Swedish as a second language, employer representatives, and study or career counsellors. The portal is designed to gather the content produced by Kielibuusti under one roof, in a clear and easily approachable form. We aim to safeguard the continuity of our operations by ensuring technical and content-related maintenance and the preconditions for the network’s functioning.
