Combining science with society at school. That is the aim of the PARRISE project. In that way, young people feel more engaged in science, experiencing its societal impact. By becoming more scientifically literate, young citizens are better equipped to participate in the process of science innovation.
PARRISE shares and improves best practices of professional development of science teachers for primary and secondary teachers across Europe. These best practices integrate two pedagogical approaches: inquiry-based science education (IBSE) and learning based on socio-scientific issues. This integrated approach is called Socio-Scientific Inquiry-Based Learning (SSIBL). The SSIBL approach introduces the challenges of Responsible Research and Innovation in education.
The overarching aim of the PARRISE project is to collect and share existing best practices across Europe. In addition, the project will develop learning tools, materials and professional development courses for science teachers based on the SSIBL approach.
