Deepening the understanding of Inquiry in Natural Sciences European Training Session 5 Fibonacci Topic Group 2 Susana BORDA CARULLA ENS Paris – La main à la pâte Foundation
Main Aim To better define inquiry-based science teaching by exploring teaching and learning practices, and to disseminate strategies for its implementation and tools for evaluation of practice and the consideration of student assessment.
Specific Objectives To better define IBSE (Inquiry-Based Science Education) by exploring teaching and learning practices To explore similarities and differences between IBSE practice at kindergarten, primary, and middle school levels To understand the issues at stake at the different stages of implementation of an IBSE project To discuss evaluation of teacher CPD (Continuing Professional Development) in IBSE To share strategies for formative and summative assessment of student learning in IBSE
How will we reach these objectives? Throughout the training session, participants will reflect upon how IBSE translates into observable classroom practices, using IBSE Diagnostic Tool for CPD Providers IBSE Self-Reflection Tool for Teachers
The IBSE Diagnostic and Self- Reflection Tools Developed by the Fibonacci Topic Group 2 6 partners working together since June 2010 on a common training/assessment tool which defines IBSE in terms of observable classroom practices Building it involved researchers, teacher trainers, teachers, students from 6 European countries Work process: Starting point: a class observation tool developed by La main à la pâte Review of bibliography on IBSE and class observation instruments Regular working meetings among Topic Group members 3 different tests in at least 5 different classes in each Fibo centre involved, at three different stages of development of the tools The tool and the process of building it: fruitful back-and-forth dialogue between research on IBSE and classroom practice Tools that trigger reflection among the different actors within the educational system: not a finished product
