PRI-SCI-NET has supported teachers in many different ways, among them through the organization of three International Training Courses. These courses provided an opportunity for participants to engage with inquiry based learning activities and acquire experience about how to best integrate them in their teaching. In addition, the participation of teachers from different countries brought with it a mixture of ideas which promoted a creative training atmosphere with a European Spirit.


In this newsletter we review the three international courses that were organized: in Usti Nad Labem, Czech Republic; Crete, Greece; and in Salzburg, Austria. All three courses were attended by both local teachers and a number of other teachers from across Europe who were supported by Pri-Sci-Net. Here we find a number of photos showing the activities which the teachers were involved in.

These training courses have helped our team of science educators to learn about how teachers prefer their professional development to be and which aspects of the training they found to be most effective. It has to be said that the teachers in all three training courses have expressed preference mainly for the ‘hands on’ parts of the training. Hands on workshops are not easy to organize as they require a lot of preparation in terms of logistics and resources.  I must thank the commitment of the Pri-Sci-Net partners who have dedicate so much time and applied their expertise for the benefit of primary teachers across Europe.
