University of South Bohemia

(USB, Czech Republic)

WP6 of the S-TEAM project


USB will produce a training module based on the science-centred competitions (The Biological Olympiad)

WP6


The main objectives

to get a collection of useful tasks for science education on the basis of competition tasks

to get data about students´ motivation towards science competitions (BiO)

to produce training courses on the basis of above mentioned resources

to disseminate the findings and the training package via summer school or via alternative projects

The main objectives


T hree course levels

(1) Pre-service teacher training the basis of competition tasks

seminar – duration of one semester –14 lessons

integrated with:

the teacher training for primary school (ISCED 2) teachers in biology

the study programme Nature and Environmental Education.

Three course levels


T hree course levels1

(2) In-service teacher training the basis of competition tasks

one day seminar for teachers with potential to disseminate the training package

Three course levels


T hree course levels2

(3) national level the basis of competition tasks

summer school in September 2010 – for professors and lecturers from other universities

Note: the training package on the level (2) will be realized in consequence of courses on the level (3).

Three course levels


Why to use the science competition in ibse

The the basis of competition taskscompetition tasks are

developed by experts

laboratory tasks are very useful.

tasks are, in fact, tested or validated

there is a methodical support

it is possible to collect data about the students’ motivation to engage in science-centred competition (Biology Olympiad) and about development of their interest in science

the data can be useful in teacher education.

Why to use the science competition in IBSE?


What data will be collected

There are two ways of acquiring the data the basis of competition tasks

students’ motivation and interest in science

analysis of competition tasks and the possibility of their use in IBSTE

What data will be collected?


Students motivation

screening step the basis of competition tasks - interviewing students in their schools and asking them about their motives for prospective participation in the BiO - the interviews will be recorded and analyzed using a grounded theory paradigm

second step- gaining in-depth information about the development of student motivation and interest

Students‘ motivation


The analysis of the tasks

Content analysis the basis of competition tasks

Mistakes analysis

Time analysis

The analysis of the tasks


The final training package

case study of selected theoretical or practical tasks the basis of competition tasks

theanalysis of teachers’ needs in implementation of science/biology competitions such as BiO in science education via IBST/E

the study how science competitions improve student motivation in science.

The final training package


Thank you for your attention. the basis of competition tasks
