Summer School 2021 in Bulgaria
Theme: Environmental issues in science education – Deepening future science and maths teachers’ learning by teaching
Organised by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Science (IMI-BAS)
Venue: Bulgaria, Sofia
Duration: 21 days in August 2021
- Science and maths ITE students
- PhD students in STEM fields
- High school students interested in working on projects related to environmental socio-scientific concepts
All target groups learn about environmental SSI. Future teachers gain knowledge on pedagogical concepts, widen their teaching scope and have the possibility to actively teach students, whilst PhD students gain experience in both aspects and can elaborate on how the respectively gained knowledge might contribute to their research work.
A social cultural program tailored to enrich the experience of the participants will be provided. Two one-day trips to sites of cultural and/or scientific importance will be included, as well as shorter visits to relevant exhibitions and museums.
The venue will be at the campus of IMI-BAS, one of its frequent conference locations or the campus of a partnering university. The locations are equipped with modern educational and accommodation facilities, quick access to emergency medical help and dedicated security.
The organisers will issue a certificate for each student and each future teacher, describing the scope of the activity and the attained learning outcome. It is intended that participants will get 3 ECTS points.
