Scientists and education experts from Italy, France, Switzerland and the UK have put together an in-service training workshop aimed at secondary school teachers of sciences or geosciences who are interested in finding out how to use seismology in their own classrooms as a "hook" to get students interested in a wide range of science topics and as a socially relevant context for seeing how the work of scientists impacts everyday lives. The workshop will run over five days in Naples, Italy and will include lectures, practical sessions and field visits to local volcanoes.
Teachers attending the course from the EU or associated states would expect to obtain full funding for all travel, accommodation, food, and course costs from the EU COMENIUS funding programme.
THE DEADLINE FOR FUNDING APPLICATIONS WAS 16th JANUARY 2012
Teachers from the UK apply directly to the British Council for funding once they have secured an offer of a place on the course.
If you have any queries please contact Paul Denton.
This workshop will be held in France, further details to follow.
