Institute for Contemporary Education annual membership:
12 months of professional development for educators
ICE’s professional development programs are designed for educators who continuously work on improving their didactic, methodological and digital competencies. Membership packages also help colleagues who are starting in the field of education to discover where to direct their efforts so as to achieve the best possible results in the classroom.
The Institute brings together renowned experts and education leaders who selflessly share their experiences and knowledge, and colleagues who are aware of the importance of lifelong learning and development. Choosing ICE’s quality professional development programs enables teachers to be exemplary professionals. So, join the members of ICE, a unique network of exquisite teachers who aspire to advance and push the boundaries in education.
Why is professional development in education important?
Changes in one’s environment, way of functioning, and life dynamics are occurring at an increasing pace, so adaptation is a lesson we all need to learn. We encounter new technological advancements that are becoming our reality on a daily basis, and new education standards are becoming an intrinsic part of the journey for every teacher. Those who understand the concept of lifelong learning and work on their professional development, convey this idea to their students. This way, they teach generations of students to be aware of the importance of lifelong learning, and acknowledge that there are no limits to what they can do.
Whether you wish to keep pace with educational innovations, become a leader, revolutionary and innovator in education, gain skills for new business positions in the country and abroad, or become a dedicated and loved teacher, ICE membership provides you with top-quality, modern and practical development programs designed to respond to your every requirement.
ICE membership – a gateway to knowledge and skills
Educators have a task to not only transfer knowledge, but help students shape their personalities and attitudes, and prepare them for a professionally successful, fulfilled and ethical life. It is, therefore, necessary to work on one’s professional development so as to make achieving top educational results a part of your personal and professional journey and your students’ learning experience.
ICE has created three membership packages, which provide teachers with an opportunity to achieve fantastic progress in developing their personal and professional skills, fulfill their development vision and acquire valuable diplomas and certificates, make a revolutionary step in teaching, and achieve spectacular results in the classroom.
ICE membership provides a unique opportunity to teachers, professors, pedagogues, and other participants in education to make a change in their approach to teaching that will delight students and make classes interactive; and all this within a year. Professional development mustn’t be a privilege of the selected few, but an obligation of all participants in the education system. If we want to change the world, we must work on the development of those changing the world – and that’s you!

Summer school program was well-balancedThe Summer school program was well-balanced. I was delighted to see that we can learn to handle any application or “tool” with ease. That week at ICE filled me with positive energy and gave me inspiration for the coming period.
It was a pleasure to participate in the forum organized by the InstituteI’ d like to thank the Institute for Contemporary Education for the wonderful opportunity to take part in the forum “(Il)literate in the 21st Century”, where I had the chance to meet colleagues, parents and children who have the same mission as us – to improve the culture and literacy of both young and elderly people. I was a pleasure to participate in your forum.
Lectures at the Institute are professional and inspirationalEven entering the Institute for Contemporary Education has a positive and inspiring effect on you. Ms. Marina Petrović makes everyone feel at home. Lecturers are genuine professionals and anyone can learn a lot from them, and even get ideas for further work.
Institut blisko sarađuje sa Pedagoškim fakultetom u JagodiniIMO kroz raznovrsne oblike stručnog usavršavanja zaposlenih u obrazovanju omogućava pojedincima da unaprede svoje kompetencije za obrazovanje u 21. veku, dok obrazovnim institucijama omogućava implementaciju inovacija, interaktivnih nastavnih metoda i najnovijih dostignuća savremene obrazovne tehnologije.
A very inspirational lectureThe lecture “Communication triangle: teacher–student–parent“ motivates teachers to reflect further on this interactive relation between the key factors in education. Teachers had the opportunity to obtain concrete and practical advice on the partnership between parents, teachers and students, which is often fragile and intermittent, and all that in the beautiful environment of the Institute. Teachers adopted important suggestions about their reactions and ways to act within the aforementioned triangle, so as to successfully maintain and develop its synergy. In addition to theoretical basics, the lecture also provided very relevant practical solutions which can significantly improve the relationship teacher – parent – student.
Institute is a place for the people who want to make progress. I am grateful for your trust and the opportunity to collaborate with the Institute. The first impressions after the panel are exceedingly positive. The staff is very friendly and professional, the interior is functional, and the environment is encouraging. Experience sharing and the adoption of new content created a pleasant atmosphere where everyone felt welcome. I am glad I had the opportunity to participate in the discussion which had positive effects on each participant and their professional development.
Stručno usavršavanje na institutu omogućava da nastavnici idu u korak sa promenama u obrazovanjuNeminovno je da put do uspeha vodi konstantnim radom na sebi (stručnim usavršavanjem). Pronaći kompetentne i kvalitetne seminare nije lako, a Institut za moderno obrazovanje ih uspešno organizuje. U Institutu za moderno obrazovanje prisustvovala sam akreditovanim seminarima i stručnim skupovima (konferencijama, tribinama) i oduševljena sam šta sam naučila.
Institut omogućava da svaki nastavnik bude vaspitnoobrazovni ekspertVelika je čast i privilegija biti član IMO. Kvalitetno i savremeno stalno stručno usavršavanje nikada nije bilo lakše i dostupnije za mene. Sjajni i stručni predavači, aktuelne obrazovne teme date kroz brojne seminare, predavanja, tribine, stručne skupove, konferencije i, naravno, modernu tehnologiju jesu vizija jednog novog, boljeg, savremenog obrazovnog sistema.
Institut sa zadovoljstvom sarađuje sa izvrsnim predavačimaImao sam čast i zadovoljstvo sarađivati sa IMO, počev od različitih vidova stručnog usavršavanja u svojstvu polaznika, pa do realizacije akreditovanog seminara „Umetnost vaspitanja – ključ uspeha u obrazovanju i saradnji sa roditeljima” i predavanja „Šta se desi sa genijem kada pođe u prvi razred?”, u svojstvu autora i realizatora. Unapred se radujem novoj saradnji i realizaciji novih projekata.
I liked the support and encouragement for young teachersI am fascinated with the technology, i.e. the fact that we can watch these lectures via live streaming. The topic is excellent, useful for more than one purpose, and thoroughly addressed. The course of the lecture “Communication triangle: teacher–student–parent” was easy to follow, and I particularly liked that it included a number of examples from the teaching practice. I liked the support and encouragement for young teachers. I’d give you an A for the triangle –lecturer, topic, and the environment.
