Course Content (Syllabus)
The course consists of workshops that introduce future teachers to science teaching, to the norms, the rhythms, the conditions of didactical transpositions elaborated in science classrooms through the use of a variety of teaching strategies. The course is carried out in three phases. In the first series of workshops, future teachers attend, discuss and analyse videotaped science lessons taking place in greek primary schools in real classroom situations. In the second phase, they prepare their own science sessions and teach them in greek primary schools. Finally, in the third set of workshops future teachers attend, study and analyse their own teaching sessions.During the course the theories of science education are gradually realised and tested in classroom applicability providing fruitful feedback for theory-practice didactical adjustments.
