The 2nd round of the “Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM Teaching” course is starting on 18th August 2014. The “Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM teaching” course aims to provide teachers, school counselors and career advisors with resources and ideas intended to increase students’ interest for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and careers.

The course is designed in response to the worrying disengagement of young people from STEM subjects in school, and their decreasing interest in related careers.

The course is structured into 8 modules which develop a learning path from the analysis of the reasons behind students’ disaffection for STEM to the development and experimentations with innovative practices to overcome it. The first 5 modules focus on motivating and engaging students in the STEM area through different approaches such as taking part in virtual visits to research centers and the use of virtual and remote labs and other innovative tools in the classroom. The last 3 modules explore career counseling aspects, providing guidance on how to inform students on STEM careers prospects and to support them in their choice. Modules are composed of video lectures of about 10 to 15 min. Also, it will engage participants with a specific activity it will involve a section of optional materials that could help deepening participants knowledge. Finally, it will include a quiz for evaluating participants’ learning outcomes. 

The “Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM teaching” course will last 8 weeks and will be facilitated by a panel of experts.

At the end of the course, participants will receive an electronic certificate of participation.
