INNOVATIVE MATHS & SCIENCE TEACHING COURSE DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

Those who learned mathematics or science through a traditional method will surely find this scene familiar: the teacher arrives in the classroom, and s/he begins with a theoretical explanation, teaches ways to solve exercises on the blackboard, which are then copied by the students, and finally, if time allows, s/he helps students to do some more exercises and we are done!

Yes, it sounds boring, and for some even frustrating! Yet, unfortunately, this scene is not part of the past, because we know that it still repeats nowadays in many classrooms, in many countries. A fact that shows how valid this traditional way of teaching technical classes in OECD countries is the scores that are still low in PISA, a study which evaluates the application of mathematics/science in a given context. However, it is important to note that those students are almost never taught to put their knowledge into practice and, instead, they continue to work with mathematics in an abstract and theoretical way. Another common issue which is directly related to low mathematics / science achievement is students’ negative attitude towards those subjects due to traditional teaching techniques. Therefore, this teacher training course includes a blended program, thanks to which you will learn different ways of mathematics/science teaching, as an alternative to the above-mentioned traditional type.

Our course program includes ICT in maths and sciences, STEM applications, project-based case studies, ethnomathematics (teaching math by relating it with students’ culture), maths / science in real life and maths & science for fun activities that are going to inspire the teachers who are willing to innovate their classes.

OBJECTIVES of the stem training course for teachers

OBJECTIVES

  • To develop students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills by exposing them to these disciplines holistically
  • To introduce innovative teaching methodologies into lesson plans
  • To analyse student needs and background to create engaging STEAM content
  • To collect STEAM teaching resources
  • To detect current good educational practices about STEAM
  • To exchange ideas, experiences, materials and cross-cultural practices between colleagues
