Learning Activities

The learning/training activities of the ELITe project target Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) secondary teachers in Greece, the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Spain. They are based on the ELITe’s project “Learning in Teaching via e-inquiries approach”, as exemplified and applied by means of 8 digital scenarios for professional learning per national context.

The training activities aim to support STEM teachers’ competence development on/for:

  • Enhancement of knowledge & understanding on learning and teaching (related to teaching and learning content; on methodologies and methods relating to STEM learning and teaching; on contextual aspects of learning and teaching);
  • Development of skills for learning and teaching (learning skills, relating to the promotion of teachers’ learning; teaching skills, relating to the promotion of students; learning; professional skills, relating to teachers’ role as part of educational communities);
  • Coming to value learning & teaching – dispositions and attitudes (relating to teachers’ own learning, to the promotion of students’ learning and to teachers’ roles as part of educational communities)

The training activities are implemented through the Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) methodology, rather than an instructional method. Activities are carried out remotely through the Dojo-IBL digital learning platform, which incorporates the basic principles of the IBL method. In digital learning communities, the participant teachers will raise their concerns in thematic, design the method of exploring their questions, explore / interpret data from sources, and link the knowledge gained with their pre-existing experiences.

The thematic areas of the activities relate to current challenges for STEM professional teaching and learning, and are outlined here below: • Dealing with inclusion and diversity • Teaching STEM for skill development • Incorporating RRI in STEM education • Innovative STEM methodologies (IBL & project work, self-directed learning, computational thinking) • Opening up school science • Assessment challenges in STEM • ICT enhanced STEM learning and teaching • Confronting challenges of new curricula • Enhancing teachers-parents collaboration.
