STEM teaching after 2020: challenge or opportunity?
Online Science Education Day 2021 at IST Austria, March 24, 2021
Klosterneuburg (OTS) – How do you use technology effectively to improve learning? What materials are there to explain virus outbreaks and pandemic control to adolescents? What happens at a virtual meeting with researchers? How do you teach science and scientific thinking in times of homeschooling and distance learning? The participants dealt with these topics at this year’s Science Education Day at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST Austria), which is again taking place this year in cooperation with the University of Education in Vienna and the University of Education in Lower Austria.
“The program for Science Education Day 2021 is of course also influenced by the pandemic,” explains Tom Henzinger, President of IST Austria. “The last year has shown us even more how important science is. But the best science is only useful if it is embedded in a society that is able to classify and apply scientific knowledge. That is why science communication has a high priority at IST Austria. ”In the spirit of distance learning, this year’s program is dedicated to the specific opportunities and challenges that have been posed to MINT lessons in recent months. Workshops, which are led by guests and experts from IST Austria, empower the participants to support the use of digital formats and technologies in mediation work, encourage them to try things out and enable the exchange of experiences. Science Education Day is a forum event for teachers, science educators and scientists. Participation is credited as advanced training at the University of Education in Vienna and Lower Austria.
