Keynote 3 - Collaboration and the fear of losing oneself: Teacher Training and Space Education in Europe
09:00 - 10:00
Teachers struggle with lack of time, excess of curricula and often, isolation. Many European initiatives have helped change this through mainly professional development and collaboration. However, collaboration often times causes fear of losing oneself. During this session we talk about the importance of collaboration in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in general, and Astronomy education in particular, and ways to minimise that fear in teachers and students through different examples used by STEM education projects, including Astronomy, for primary/ secondary school teachers.
