Inquiry based teacher training for a sustainable future

Inquiry based teacher training for a sustainable future
Improving Science Education
has been and still is an issue in educational policy in many European countries and worldwide (Roccard Report, 2007; Osborne &Dillon,2008). High quality science teaching applied by those engaging in science education, formal and non formal settings alike, is essential for effective student learning (Osborne & Dillon 2008; Hattie, 2008).

Learning Outside the Classroom
Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievement through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn. (Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto, 2006)
These institutions have a great potential to support K12 science learning but often do not engage in larger educational reform efforts or evaluate their education programs on a regular basis (Phillips et al. 2007).

Implementing Inquiry Based Science Learning
The European commission’s 7th Framework Program designer have been wise to focus on ‘Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE)’. Still nobody knows exactly what kind of knowledge, skills and attitudes are needed by teachers and educators to design IBSE learning environments and which of those are most successful in supporting students learning (Minner et al., 2010).

Misunderstanding about Inquiry Based Science
Myth 1. IBSE must include hands‐on activities Myth 2. Taking part in IBSE is like ‘being a scientist’ Myth 3. Teachers can’t tell students anything during IBSE Myth 4. IBSE is better than other teaching strategies Myth 5. Students prefer IBSE over other methods Myth 6. It’s difficult to assess IBSE Myth 7. Teachers and other educators can be trained
to use IBSE quickly
[Dillon, J. (2013) Panacea or passing fad – how good is IBSE. Roots, 9,(2),2012]

Inquiry based teacher training for a sustainable future
IBSE in INQUIRE:
 ‐ promotes a model of the learner as autonomous and independently thinking ‐ someone capable of dealing successfully with many aspects of science.
 ‐ provides free space for organising their learning processes individually.  ‐ some science content needs to be taught by teachers – students cannot simply
invent scientific knowledge without any basic level of scientific knowledge.  helps students to understand the various and creative scientific approaches
which represent the foundation of scientific learning by
‐ enabling them to experience these approaches first‐hand.
‐developing their ability to critically examine what they are told by people or what they read online or in newspapers.
‐ examining their own ideas critically and ensuring that, as much as possible, they are evidence‐based.
