action research, science education, implementation


ARTiST (Action Research to innovate Science Teaching) was a project co-funded by the ERASMUS+ program of the European Union. Ten partners from seven countries worked together and implemented action research into their science teacher education programs. The main philosophy of the project was to innovate science education through classroom-based and teacher-driven action research. Training materials, teacher professional development courses for teachers and students were developed during the ARTiST-project. Some examples of the activities after three years of the projects’ end will be presented in this communication.
