Teacher training in Finland is facing a situation in which it is necessary to develop new ways to organize education according to the needs of the students and society. There is an increasing demand for a more flexible teacher study program that would make it possible for students to face the future challenges in more versatile ways. This qualitative study investigates pre-service teachers’ professional development during the 6 ECTS credits learning period in multiple authentic 21st Century learning environments in Primary school teacher training. This article provides an opportunity to discuss and develop primary school teacher training to help pre-service teachers to adapt themselves to future demands.
