Teacher Workshop and Training Sessions

Teacher Workshop and Training Sessions - How it works? - click here to read more

Dear teachers,
the EDU-ARCTIC team has the pleasure to invite teachers from schools registered on the portal to submit their application for participation in one of the three Educators’ Fora. These workshops will be dedicated to schools and teachers from different parts of Europe (teachers form western and southern Europe will meet in France (Paris), teachers from central and eastern Europe in Poland (Warsaw) and from northern Europe in Norway (Oslo Gardemoen)). You may check, which workshop to choose in description of each workshop or in the list of countries provided below.

Each Forum will provide methodology training sessions for teachers and educators coupled to theoretical didactical themes. Meetings will be mainly conducted in the form of active workshops offering:

•    to give information about the project and its possibilities
•    to train teachers how to use the project effectively
•    to become familiar with the portal, polar research, and earth sciences issues
•    to provide expert knowledge enabling teachers to feel more comfortable in a particular field and to prepare lessons on the subject with bigger self-confidence
•    to provide additional educational and promotional materials

One of the objectives of the workshops is to prepare teachers to their new role as ambassadors of the project in their countries. Teachers will be encouraged to become local leaders/ambassadors of the project and distribute information about the project in their countries to enhance the educational program’s audience. Another major objective of the workshops consists in gathering teachers’ and educators’ opinions on the proposed program and their recommendations for improvements of solutions and functionalities or topics that could be introduced within the project in order to adjust the program to users’ needs and organisational conditions.

In order to gather as many countries‘ representatives as possible, at least one teacher from each country will receive a special grant to cover travel expenses. Accommodation, food and workshop materials will be provided by the organisers. For details see descriptions of each workshop.

In case of questions you may contact persons indicated in the description of each workshop.

We are looking forward to receiving your application form.
