Another school year has started and with renewed energies and promising projects ahead, all of us will go on "CLIL-ing" in our diverse educational contexts. From these lines, I wish to welcome all of you to take part in our first seminar session on October 10th and I would also like to encourage you to enrol in the third Scientix Ambassadors Training Course to become a Scientix Ambassador.
Just in case you have never heard of Scientix, I will start by letting you know that Scientix is the Community for Science Education in Europe. It offers a superb network for Science Education Projects and it has just published a new call for teachers who would like to become Scientix Ambassadors and a part of its fast growing Scientix Teachers' Panel.
What do you have to do if you want to join this community of STEM teachers across Europe? You would have to apply for the on-line course they are offering for free. The current edition of the course will run between 2 October and 4 December 2017. Places are limited to 300 participants per edition.
Participants will be chosen from among those that apply through this form before September 20th taking into account the order of application and a fair country distribution.
The main goal of the course is to introduce teachers to the Scientix tools and practice, but also to help STEM teachers from across Europe and beyond to get the information and develop skills and competencies that can contribute to their professional development.
Further details on the contents and aims of the course can be found here.
I hope you will not miss this opportunity if you are a STEM teacher and I would like to end this first post by thanking all of you, STEM and non-STEM teachers, for having registered for our CLIL seminar at Secondary 2017-2018.
