This package comprises a workshop on the methods of educational research as a stepping stone for performing a practical research project. The aim of the project is to deepen your insight in (your own) educational practice through scientific means and to introduce you to the means and results of educational research. Pivoting in the package is looking systematically and critically to education, and from that taken further steps in your development.

The course strongly focusses on STEM-education (STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Your research project will be closely connected to your own teaching practice. If you take this package as part of your teaching training course, your teaching must be in Dutch upper secondary education. Other participants can be active in teaching in other levels e.g. university or higher education either as trainee of as a job. Guidance is provided on the full/associated/assistant professor level.

NB: This package is part of the teacher training trajectory for a Dutch degree ‘1e graads leraar’. It is open for master students and PhD’s seeking to deepen their knowledge and competence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education by doing practical research
