28. August 2021 - 29. August 2021
Theme: Incorporating Socio-Scientific Issues in STEM Education
Hacettepe University, Turkey
How would you persuade someone to take COVID-19 vaccine? How can we tackle with climate change? As a teacher, how would you use socio-scientific issues in your classroom practice?
The citizens make their decisions based on their knowledge, beliefs, social values, worldviews, as well as based on the understanding about science and its nature. The participation of the public in discussion, policy debates and decision-making about science-related issues is essential to maintain a healthy democracy. This ENSITE Multiplier Event aims to discuss with teachers, teacher educators and policy makers how to incorporate socio-scientific issues in STEM education. The Event will take place as part of the 2nd International STEM Education Conference and the 2nd International STEM Teachers Conference, which will be held on August 28-29, 2021 in Cappadocia, Turkey. Accordingly, the theme of this year’s conference is “incorporating socio-scientific issues in STEM education”. There will be plenary talks, workshops, poster presentations and show and talk sessions. In particular, outcomes of the ENSITE project and other national and European projects on SSIs will be presented at this event.
