The Czech education has been criticised for overloading the students with too many facts and forced memorising of the subject matter. The pedagogical practice continues to be dominated by the teaching style relying on one-way communication from the teacher to students and on an external management that supports passive reception of presented knowledge. The school education thus ironically contributes to the fact the school graduates lack the elementary key competencies. Educational research underlines the need of a teaching dialogue and a broader use of activity and cooperation based methods. This is the direction we wish to follow in the development and implementation of the new methodology portfolio in the teacher training programmes.
