THEME: SOCIAL-SCIENTIFIC ISSUES IN MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE TEACHERS EDUCATION
DATE: 25TH AUGUST 2022
VENUE: CONSTANTINE THE PHILOSOPHER UNIVERSITY IN NITRA, SLOVAKIA
This ENSITE Multiplier Event is part of an international one-day conference and will include plenary lectures as well as seminars and workshops. Our target groups of this events are teachers in higher education, PhD students, policy makers, curricula designers and scientists in general pedagogy and theory of education, mathematics and science subjects. One strong target group of the conference participants is the group of in-service teachers, who assist to students in initial teachers’ education (ITE) as the pedagogical practice mentors at upper primary and secondary schools. The other strong national group are university teachers participating on ITE. We are expecting professors at several Slovak universities from Bratislava, Banská Bystrica, Košice, Prešov, Žilina, Trnava – and also policy makers of educational institutions like: State Pedagogical Institute, National Centre for Certificated Measurement in Education, State Institute of Vocational Education, National Centre of Scientific and Technical Information.
With this event we want to enable participants to act as multipliers upon the end of the event, promoting and transferring the project, its results and underlying environmental challenges to a wide audience across Europe. We want to introduce our developed intellectual outputs within the ENSITE project:
- O2 Reasoning, argumentation and critical thinking using media reports as a starting point
- O5 Decision-making based on confronting scientific positions
- O10 Designing a SSI lesson II with focus on appropriate methods to promote creativity, critical thinking and reasoning
- O11 Scaffolding, supporting students by providing a framework how to deal with SSI
- O12 SSI and assessment of student work
We want to introduce other project materials and ideas and discuss their contents, relevance and implications. Participants will naturally get to know the outputs, gain knowledge on environmental issues and how they affect their role as teachers of future generations. The event will support them in including socio-scientific issues into their future teaching, academic and scientific work. The resulting feedback and input will be used to improve our materials and gain insight in further national particularities and necessities.
The project ENSITE IOs will be presented by their leaders: IO2, IO5, IO10, IO11, IO12 as on-site and/or on-line lectures in the morning of the day. In the afternoon on-site workshops and on-line seminars will be organized. The ENSITE IOs will be presented by paper posters and short videos, too.
The languages of the multiplier event are English and Slovak.
The conference is free of charge for all participants.
