The conference aim is to provide a platform for exchange among research and practice on the successful implementation of innovative teaching concepts and experiences on and with ‘educating the educators’ and the scaling up of professional development.
Accordingly, we welcome a range of different formats and high-quality contributions addressing issues of approaches to scaling-up professional development in maths and science education from different countries. We welcome 20 minute oral presentations (plus 10 minutes discussion time) of research-based papers, as well as practical reports or demonstrations (e.g. a simulation of a professional development situation, demonstration of materials, demonstration of e-learning support platforms).
It is essential that your proposal clearly refers to one of the main topics of the conference:
Your proposal should outline:
(1) How it relates to the overall conference theme;
(2) From which perspective (e.g. country-specific, target group-specific) it will address the topic;
(3) How it relates to one of the conference topics (brief outline of the content and subject matter of your planned presentation/input); and
(4) Which of the questions (exemplarily) raised in the topic descriptions you will address.
In addition, you are requested to (5) clearly provide a description of the format you intend to use.
Proposals should be precise, and include sufficient details and references for a critical review. Please keep in mind when planning/writing your proposal that it should also address the underlying purpose of promoting more meaningful and motivating science and mathematics learning.
