Welcome to the website of the second conference on
‘Educating the educators –
international approaches to scaling-up professional development in maths and science education’
The conference will take place from 7 to 8 November 2016 (including an Early Career Researchers’ Day on 9 November) at the University of Education Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.
The European project mascil (Mathematics and Science for Life!) and the DZLM (German Centre for Mathematics Teacher Education, funded by the Deutsche Telekom Foundation) are pleased to host the conference. This conference follows on the great success of the first conference we hosted on this topic in December 2014 in Essen, Germany (almost 200 researchers, policy makers and practitioners participated in the first conference).
This second conference serves as a researcher-practitioner platform for exchange focusing on research, policy and practice relevance and implications. Next to high-level keynote speakers, presentations by researchers and practitioners, a Materials Market, and an Early Career Researcher's Day the conference will also feature a company visit to reflect innovation in STEM education in the industrial context, a Policy Seminar and host a meeting of the Network of European STEM Professional Development Centres.
The organisers wish to thank the Gisela und Erwin Sick Stiftung for a generous donation supporting the conference.
The conference board and organisers are looking forward to welcoming you to the conference!
