Professional development is an important requirement in the work of all science teachers. It is a lifelong process which demands both time and effort. Professional development keeps teachers up-to-date with evidence-based research on teaching and learning methods, emerging technology tools for the classroom, and new curricula. The main goal of this webinar is to support primary and secondary teachers in their professional development, regardless of their experience with science subjects. A plethora of ideas and possibilities is presented, covering a wide range of ongoing programmes and initiatives (online training seminars, communities of practice, Erasmus+ courses).
