Educating the Educators (ETE) is an international conference series on professional development in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education that brings together teacher educators, policy makers, teachers and various other stakeholders related to STEM education.
ETE IV will focus on implementing and scaling up innovative teaching approaches in STEM education and in particular on open schooling initiatives with respect to environmental issues (such as waste reduction, energy reduction/transition, increasing electricity needs for clouds and bitcoins, etc.). The aim is to discuss different approaches with a rich variety of participants on ways of working for teachers and PD course leaders, the roles of teaching materials, and on structures needed for innovations in STEM education.
ETE IV features both traditional and innovative formats to benefit of gathering a circle of participants from research, practice and policy. Vivid exchange and collaborative work will be ensured by spaces for co-creation and for sharing ideas and results. Three prominent keynote speakers will provide rich introductions on the main theme of the conference:
- Arjen Wals (Professor Transformative Learning for Socio-ecological Sustainability/Unesco Chair at Wageningen University & Research, Netherlands)
- Marta Romero Ariza (MOST-project & University of Jaén, Spain)
- Katja Maaß (MOST-project & University of Education Freiburg, Germany)
Registration and proposal submission of various interactive working formats are now open!
