ERASMUS+: The Art of De-biasing


“The Art of De-biasing” („dBias”) is a three-year project co-financed by the European Union Erasmus+ programme. In order for students to develop practical knowledge and understand what they learn, and teachers be able to provide high level of the educational outcomes, the Institute for Contemporary education in cooperation with the partners in the dBias project, in the course of the forthcoming three years will develop solutions that will completely alter the way of teaching starting a new educational paradigm.

The teachers of Serbia, participating in this project, will have the unique opportunity to attend the expert programmes trainings and become first in the world who are qualified to recognise cognitive bias in students. This is a revolutionary step in the domain of professional development in education. It is also a radical step towards the change of an educational model.
