SEEP Training

SCIENCE EDUCATION

Up till 2017 VisMedNet was a platform for the SEEP Network delivering creative training content for teachers of science in various levels of school education. Content followed the philosophy of SEEP with a focus on vision towards new and alternative applications of science and careers in science.

Down to Earth of Science Education

This course is intended for teachers of science who wish to bring the subject of environment and energy as a cross topic or cross curricular subject of discussion in science education. It will touch upon putting in green topics as an inspiration for future applications and careers in green science. It touches upon engaging video making in environment topics and interaction with stakeholders and players in the green economy and policy making.

Video Production in Science Education

This course is in part technical training in basic skills for video production and in part classroom and project management in video production. The underlying concept behind the training is the use of video production as a means for fostering cooperation and autonomy in the classroom, making the teacher less of a teacher and more of a leader and director. It is the introduction of video production in the science classroom as a means towards instilling interest in research in science and the acquisition of presentation skills on science subjects in the minds of the students.


June 2016, Palermo
Short course organised by the SEEP network hosted by Med Export Europe
The course will give exposure to an experimental approach towards the assessment of project work of students in science related subjects. The experimentation is what VISConti partners and expert members in the VisMedNet Association have devised as the VISConti method. It involves three elements :
- peer approach between teachers and students when it comes to assessment of projects in science related subjects,
- profiling oneself - teachers and students - in reality and in social or virtual networking spaces,
- identifying criteria and thresholds for the assessment of projects in a three dimensional manner.
The course will not provide a ready-to-use solution but will give the right elements for participants to look at possibilities for adaptation to one's own school. It will bring participants together to identify avenues in which teachers and students network for science and experiments with the formation of a real and virtual science community around the school that involves past and present students. The course will meet its objectives if participants leave the course refreshed and appreciative of the importance of networking, self profiling and using the right tools for assessment that incentivate innovation, research culture and that bank on pride in one's own work without inhibition towards creativity in science.

2013-2015 were the first years in which the SEEP Network started working on an autonomous basis by exploring small initiatives with a select number of schools and organisations. These activities were important because they provided a foundation for network to become self sustainable as it is today and to get into new areas and forge new ideas that would extend the partnership and areas of activities.

February 2015, Malta
Short course organised by the SEEP network hosted by VisMedNet Association
This course is based on the experience of the organisation of the European Youth Science Days and the content covers all areas of organisation, media and activities that can make a science event in school more interesting and engaging. It covers areas like wide ownership of the event within the school management, teaching staff, students and other players in the community. It included management tools, gantt charts and cooperation. It contains an element of video production that could be one of the most creative vehicles for student engagement and post event exploitation and sharing outwards.

2009-2012 were the start up years of the SEEP Network when it started out with partial financial support of the European Commission under the LLP Comenius funding programme. During this phase the SEEP Network was under the leadership of Universita' degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi of Rome and of Opportunities Aid Foundation of Malta. Training and Workshops were those proposed when the consortium bid for funding and the content was the result of a collective effort of 15 partners from the EU and Turkey. They were held and hosted by partners in the consortium including Universities, local public policy making bodies, schools and private non-profit making organisations involved in Education.
