This document describes the guidelines for organising teacher trainings in the BLOOM project. The D4.2 deliverable will support the WP4 pilot teachers in the organisation, implementation and evaluation of the teacher trainings they will hold in their countries, by offering them a clear, straightforward, systematic guide. A the core of the teacher trainings discussed in this document lies the BLOOM School Box (Task 4.1) which is currently being developed by the pilot teachers and will be finalized by February 2019.
The document is structured in two main parts. The first part is a general introduction for someone who is not familiar with the BLOOM project and who would like to understand what trainings the teachers will offer. Section 2 contains the actual guidelines pilot teachers need to follow in order to organise a successful BLOOM teacher training. These guidelines discuss the target groups of the teacher trainings, the organisational measures pilot teachers must take, a sample agenda of the trainings, the evaluation approach, certification of participants, and finally, we summarise the reporting needed in order to conclude a successful teacher training.
Teacher trainings represent an important and strategic component for the dissemination and uptake of innovative STEM practices, and for the BLOOM project in particular, the uptake of bio economy by young citizens. Teachers are an indispensable medium for transmitting the applications of bio economy in education at local level. Through these trainings, the number of teachers who will use bio economy in their lessons will grow exponentially.
The BLOOM pilot teachers will receive continuous support from both European Schoolnet (EUN) and the project hubs and partners. Through this deliverable, EUN aims to offer the pilot teachers a first go-to manual to guide them in organizing, delivering and evaluating their training activities.
