Innopeda Podcast Series: Episode 8


Talk Podcast: Innopeda in the Brazilian Context

Guests: Juliana Amaral-Piispa, Business Designer and Marjo Joshi, Chief Advisor, Turku UAS
Host: Milla Järvipetäjä, Research Group Leader, Senior Lecturer, Project Manager, Turku UAS


Turku UAS has established co-operation with Brazilian schools and universities which are interested in Innovation Pedagogy. Turku UAS has created Innopeda® training packages for continuing education to Brazilian teacher and professor groups.

In this Innopeda podcast episode Milla Järvipetäjä and her guests discuss the cultural differences between Brazilian and Finnish pedagogical approaches. Brazilians find the student centric approach new and unusual but are very motivated in adapting the methods, processes and strategic approaches of Innopeda®.

Chief Advisor Marjo Joshi emphasizes that providing continuous education with support and guidance on the implementation of new ideas as well as quality management leads to good results.

Revising the student and teacher roles and following the Innopeda® approach holistically means that in addition to teachers’ professional development, the management, the educational processes and the learning environment are encouraged to meet the Innopeda® guidelines.

Business Designer Juliana Piispa describes the Brazilian educators very interactive and interested in “person behind” and trainers are expected to socialize with students after the training.

In this active podcast discussion Marjo Joshi, Juliana Piispa and Milla Järvipetäjä share their experiences educating Innopeda in Brazil.

    You cannot rely on the option of one person to generalize the behavior of teachers in Brazil. More research is required to determine the differences between Brazilian and Finnish teachers.

  2. Milla Järvipetäjä sanoo:

    Thank you for your relevant notion, Pedro. The remarks we make are based only on our experience. Naturally, we should not generalize this experience to cover all Brazilian teachers. Luckily, our experiences are very good, and we enjoy working with the motivated, joyful and hard-working teachers we have a connection with!

  3. Ana Luiza Freitas sanoo:

    Brazil is a continental country, and its educational practices are very diversified. In that sense, I believe that generalizing may be risky. Furthermore, some aspects, such as distinctions in power relations between teachers and students, cannot be overlooked anywhere. Fortunately, that kind of asymmetry can be reduced by implementing inclusive educational practices, not deleted, though, as there are asymmetries inherent to the power structure which characterizes the educational system per se.

  4. Milla Järvipetäjä sanoo:

    Thank you Ana Luiza for your valuable comment! In Innopeda trainings we aim to emphasize the student role as an active operator with the ability to take initiative. In that sense, we aim to foster the inclusion and recognition of both student and teacher role in the learning process through reflection.
