The DAISSy Research Group of Hellenic Open University (HOU) invites you to the webinar titled ‘Competence Needs and Professional Development of STE(A)M Educators’, on 26 March 2021 at 14:30-16:00 CET.
During the event, the key activities, findings and outputs of the Erasmus+ KA3 project “STEAMonEdu: Competence development of STE(A)M educators through online tools and communities’, which is coordinated by DAISSy Research Group, will be presented.
The agenda highlights the three aspects of the project, namely:
- STE(A)M education community: In STEAMonEdu project, educators are given a central role as members of a community that is supported by an online platform in collecting best practices, designing educational scenarios, discussing the necessary competences and sharing experience.
- STE(A)M education ecosystem: The STEAMonEdu project has developed the STE(A)M competence framework, which details the necessary educators’ competences for implementing STE(A)M education. Based on this framework, STE(A)M educator profile(s) will be designed, along with the development of a STE(A)M-readiness self-assessment tool for educators and organizations. In addition, the STE(A)M education framework was established, which describes the related methodologies, body of knowledge, OERs and practices.
- Professional development of teachers and educators: The project will deliver a training course, which includes a MOOC that is based on the STE(A)M competence framework, supplemented by a blended course that will result in the collaborative development of STE(A)M learning activity templates and projects.
The event is organized within the All Digital Week campaign and it will take place in English.
