Doel en doelgroep

The ETE IV will be combined with the MOST conference: professional development in mathematics and science education that brings together teacher educators, policy makers, teachers and various other stakeholders related to STEM education.

ETE IV will focus on implementing and scaling up innovative teaching approaches in STEM education and in particular on open schooling initiatives with respect to environmental issues (such as waste reduction, energy reduction/transition, increasing electricity needs for clouds and bitcoins, etc.). The aim is to discuss different approaches with a rich variety of participants on three dimensions:

  • Personal dimension: Which roles, contents and activities have to be considered in the professional development courses for PD course leaders and facilitators in professional learning? In particular, what do need teacher educators to support teachers in running open schooling projects? What do teachers need for being involved in open schooling initiatives on environmental issues?
  • Material dimension: Which role can materials play in professional development for mathematics and science teachers, such as classroom materials, materials for students and community members (such as brainstorming templates), face-to-face and online materials? In particular what materials do teachers need to run open schooling projects?
  • Structural dimension: What structures are needed for implementing and sustaining open schooling initiatives, such as school-community projects, on environmental issues?
