A lighthouse for STEM teacher education and training in Europe
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EUROPEAN IN- AND PRE-SERVICE STEM TEACHERS (PROSTEM) (2022-2025)

Welcome to ICSE Academy

The ICSE Academy is a PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EUROPEAN IN- AND PRE-SERVICE STEM TEACHERS (PROSTEM) (2022-2025). ICSE Academy is a collaboration of

  • 13 Higher Education Institutions
  • 13 policy-making organizations
  • 65 schools

in 13 European countries to provide innovations for professional learning of pre- and in-service STEM teachers.

Altogether 100 higher education researchers, STEM initial teacher education (ITE) staff and continuous professional development (CPD) providers, educational policy makers, pre- and in-service teachers joined forces to improve Europe’s STEM teacher education and training!

The ICSE Academy offers a wide range of activity formats

  • job-shadowing
  • workshop series
  • summer schools

which bring together STEM teacher students, teacher educators and teachers.

Jointly organized by all project countries and taking place across Europe, each format provides enriching European perspectives on STEM education, supported by a distinct spotlight on learning about, from and for each other.

All offered activities feature a unique profile: they promote the European dimension and increase mobility and collaboration in STEM teacher education and training.

Partners

The basis of all this is a strong needs and feasibility alignment, made possible by the huge amount of partners and their connected networks. By that the ICSE Academy can provide innovations in STEM teacher education and training which close the gaps between needs and available professional learning opportunities. To further tap the full potential of innovation in education, the ICSE Academy regularly is supported by and informs policy on effective, accessible, and transferable professional learning, establishing a forward-looking and future-proof service for Europe’s STEM education landscape.

ICSE (International Centre for STEM Education) is an internationally connected research centre that is located at the University of Education in Freiburg, Germany. The ultimate aim of ICSE is to help improve STEM education across Europe through practice-related research and its transfer into practice.

The work of ICSE and its partners focuses on the following six areas: inquiry based learning, connections to the world of work, real-life contexts, interdisciplinary STEM teaching, diversity in classrooms and gender aspects in STEM teaching.

In order to support an implementation of these elements in STEM teaching, three aspects are central to ICSE: practice-related research, working on the national as well as international level and cooperating with key actors from the field of STEM education.
