The first round of Intel Teach – Advanced Online Program participants have been awarded at a ceremony that took place in Dublin City University yesterday.
The programme aims to encourage a professional development online community that supports highly skilled and innovative teachers.
The pilot programme, which was facilitated through the Centre for the Advancement of Science and Mathematics Teaching & Learning (CASTeL) at Dublin City University (DCU), is a professional development initiative for pre-service teachers of mathematics and science, studying the BSc Science Education at Dublin City University.
All educational levels
“CASTeL members are actively involved in the integration of research, teaching and learning in mathematics and science across all educational levels,” said DCU’s Dr Eilish McLoughlin, director CASTeL.
“We are delighted to partner with Intel in piloting this international education initiative with pre-service mathematics and science teachers in Ireland and believe that this programme provides the necessary structure to support teachers to work collaboratively and sustain a culture of inquiry, innovation and creativity in the classroom.”
