Uploaded by RRI Tools on 18 February 2021

The MOOC will provide materials and stories of implementation from innovative citizen science education projects. Citizen Science Education is based on the assumption that teachers and researchers can find a common ground of discussion and develop practices that are advantageous both, for the education sector, and the science sector.

Therefore, this course proposes a process of collaboration between teachers and researchers. It provides insights from the perspective of researchers that have supported teachers developing STEM learning scenarios that include scientific activities based on the needs of active research projects.

The pedagogical information offered in this course revolves around raising awareness regarding the latest developments in the field of STEM didactics. The main objective of this MOOC however, is to provide instructional design guidelines and the necessary resources so that teachers can develop a learning scenario of their own."

Learning objectives

  • Learn more about the process of integrating scientific activities in STEM teaching
  • Explore the possibilities that classrooms’ learning environment can utilize once teachers’ and scientists’ forces are combined
  • Learn how to contextualize in class deeper scientific knowledge while keeping the teaching engaging
  • Develop a citizen science learning scenario

This course targets teachers that are interested in bringing science in their class through designing, developing and implementing citizen science education projects.
