Bring the Ocean into your School MOOC 2024
The 'Bring the Ocean into your School' MOOC is designed with a clear goal: to provide inspiration and guidance to educators as they set out on their mission to convey the importance of our oceans to their students, integrate ocean literacy into their teaching practices, and craft their unique “Find the blue” project. The course will be held online from 15 January to 21 February, with an estimated workload of 3 to 4 hours per module.
Accelerate Your Teaching MOOC: Research Facilities to Support STEM Education
Accelerating Teaching and Scientix are proud to announce the ‘Accelerate Your Teaching MOOC: Research Facilities to Support STEM Education’. With this course, which will be held online on the European Schoolnet Academy, secondary teachers will have the opportunity to learn how to organise learning experiences centred around particle accelerators for their students. Participants will explore the wide range of applications and concepts related to accelerators as well as learn how to use stories from large facilities across Europe to teach the topics they all teach. Educators will engage in discussions about pedagogical approaches and socially relevant content for STEM interdisciplinary teaching.
STEM out of the box MOOC: a STEM approach to non-STEM subjects
Would you like to learn how to integrate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in your lessons and help students develop deep scientific, mathematic, and problem-solving skills? Join this online course and learn how to introduce this way of thinking in early childhood education. Help your students develop solutions to open-ended real-world problems which will engage them in higher-order thinking and reasoning. You will explore practical STEM classroom activities and ideas, rooted in real-world problems. The course will guide you through teacher-created and tested lesson plans, resources, and challenges to increase students’ knowledge and skills needed for the future.
STEM MOOCS PACKAGE
The ‘Integrated STEM Teaching for Primary Schools’ MOOC is relevant to primary school teachers of all levels of experience who are interested in learning how to go from teaching isolated Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics classes, to a real integrated STEM teaching of these topics, not only among themselves but with all other disciplines. This MOOC examined the opportunities offered by integrated STEM teaching and will provide many practical examples.
The ‘Integrated STEM Teaching for Secondary Schools’ MOOC aimed to provide secondary school teachers with essential skills and knowledge to go from isolated Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics classes, to a real integrated STEM teaching of these topics. And not only among themselves but with all other disciplines. Furthermore, you are be able to explore exemplary STE(A)M integrated lesson plans created and tested by other teachers, and many more relevant resources.
STEM Is Everywhere
This course is meant to connect Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) classes with “real life” and help teachers integrate real-world problems into their STEM lessons and practices. The lack of connection between real life and STEM classes might cause students to rule out STEM careers, because they feel detached from STEM and might deem it too “academic” or “research-oriented”. Teachers often encounter this issue when they aim to motivate their students or direct them towards STEM careers. Therefore, the ‘STEM Is Everywhere!’ course offers guidance and practical examples for you to bring real-world problems to your STEM teaching in an entertaining way. The course also aims to connect you with other STEM teachers so that you can share experiences and best practices.
Opening Minds to STEM careers (Rerun)
The "Opening Minds to STEM Careers" Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aims at informing, training and empowering primary and secondary teachers in successfully introducing and attracting young people to choose STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers from an early age, as well as to learn about private and public initiatives in STEM education.
Opening Schools to STEM careers
The "Opening Schools to STEM careers" Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aimed at informing, training and empowering Heads of Schools and Career Counsellors in successfully equipping (and adapting) schools with tools for introducing students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers from an early age. This course was an opportunity for those who wanted to understand why STEM is critical for students’ future welfare and success, the current state of play of industries and companies, through online lessons and information about career guidance and development.
