“Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM teaching”
inGenious course launched in March

The “Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM teaching” course run by European Schoolnet launched 17 March 2014 within the FP7 inGenious Project aims to provide teachers, school counselors, and career advisers with resources and ideas to increase pupils’ interest in 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 that develop a learning path from the analysis of the reasons behind pupils’ disaffection for STEM to the development and experimentations with innovative practices to overcome it.

Modules 1-5 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.

Modules 6-8 explore career counseling aspects, providing guidance on how to inform pupils on STEM careers prospects and to support them in their choice.

The “Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM teaching” course will last 8 weeks and will be animated by a European Schoolnet panel of experts who will contribute to it with their specific expertise and will engage participants through collaborative activities.

This course is open to everybody interested in STEM subjects, however, it is mainly addressed to science, engineering, technology,  and math teachers, career advisers, and school counselors.

The course runs for eight weeks and requires about 2-3 hours per week.

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