The overall aim of the Go-Lab Summer Schools is to support the modernization of science education and training, including in school curricula, assessment of learning outcomes and the professional development of teachers and trainers.  The concept is based on the need identified in the Rocard Report "A new Pedagogy for the Future of Europe" (Rocard et al., 2007), that sets the basics for the introduction of the Inquiry Based Learning approaches in the science curricula of the Member States.

This year, we are offering two summer schools:

  • A “Beginners” Go-Lab Summer School for those with no or little experience in how to use Go-Lab
  • A Go-Lab Summer School for more “Advanced & experienced users”, i.e. that are familiar with the Ecosystem and have already worked with Go-Lab in the classroom but want to go deeper to learn all about the pedagogical and technical opportunities.

Both courses are organized in the context of the project "Next-Lab: Next Generation Stakeholders and Next Level Ecosystem for Collaborative Science Education with Online Labs". Their main objective is to introduce teachers to the use of online laboratories as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques to help them develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices. These tools and techniques will facilitate teacher to engage students into science topics, in order to acquire scientific inquiry skills and experience the culture of doing science, under motivating circumstances, by undertaking active, guided, experimentation, carried out in renown scientific facilities and research centers.

Both courses will include presentations followed by practical sessions and workshops focusing on:

  • Concepts and skills of learning-design, inquiry processes and multidisciplinary teaching
  • Preparing, uploading and sharing digital learning resources and activities
  • Inquiry-based learning activities for use in the science classroom
  • Familiarization with online labs and the educational resources of Golabz
  • Introduction to 21st Century Skills and the Go-Lab learning analytic tools
  • Hands-on sessions working on onilne labs and resources related to science.

The repertoire of online labs, experiments and best practices, and the educational tools that will be presented in combination with the hands-on activities will facilitate the participants in learning how to deploy and integrate them in their school environment and everyday science teaching practice and also how to contribute their own work into educational repositories and share it within a European community of practice.

Participation in this course can be funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 1, Mobility project for school education staff). See "Fees & Funding" for further assistance and guidelines on how to apply for an Erasmus+ KA1 grant.
