Ways to enhance motivation in a European perspective - Sweden

Topic(s) addressed

  • Creativity
  • Inclusion
  • Sustainability

Target groups

A total of 35 both teaching- and non-teaching staff participated in the job-shadowing activities.


  • Three questions concerning ongoing project activities and three follow-up queries were posed for further investigation bringing inspiration from the answers.
  • Knowledge, skills and attitudes developed during job shadowing through non-formal and informal learning, acting as complements to participants' formal learning and current curricula. 
  • Nyhemsskolan used the opportunity given by the diversity of partner organisations to implement best practices.
  • Digital tools, such as eTwinning, were a part of the project.


Spatial and methodological changes were implemented thanks to the job shadowing activities and follow-up discussions.


  • As participants included both teaching and non-teaching staff, the whole organisation could act as agents of innovation whilst increasing skills and competencies. 
  • With 70% of the staff participating in an activity, the whole organisation was impacted, increasing both cooperation and peer learning. 
  • Using the same model for all activities ensured transferability within the organisation.


  • The participants were given tools to develop practices in their profession whilst increasing self-motivation. 
  • The pupils have benefited directly both in terms of inclusion and higher motivation, as shown in feedback.
