Course objectives
Educational goals of the course are basic instructional knowledge of educational diagnostics with a focus on didactic diagnosis; There are the basic reproductive skills of searching and applying science integrating concepts and methods in science education. The main content of education include concepts such as STEM education, integration and coordination, intersectoral and interdisciplinary relations, integrating scientific concepts etc. Objectives: Trivia: STEM education in contemporary society; development paradigms of science education; intersectoral and interdisciplinary relations in science; integrating scientific concepts; observation and experiment; solving scientific problems; research methods. Skills: analyze, search and apply integrating scientific content (concepts) in science education Attitudes: accept the importance of integrating the role of science in science and STEM education.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, students should know and be able to:
- search for and apply basic integrative concepts in natural sciences and science education
- use observation, experimentation, and problem solving in integrated science education
- Accept the importance of integrating the role of science in science and STEM education
