SwedishTeachers Programme Improvements

19 June 2013 – L.Jirdén

summary
Summary
  • Information & Registration
  • Funding
  • Programme content
  • Support & Follow-up
  • Organization and run of Programmes
information and registration
Information and Registration
  • How do teachers know about the CERN Teachers programme?
    • In general, they don’t !!!
    • Via satisfied participant
    • Via CERN Education site
      • -> Teachers Programme -> National Programmes for Teachers -> Sweden -> National contact -> L.Jirden …
  • Needed: “National Information and Registration service”
    • Various levels
      • “Gymnasie” teachers
      • “Högstadie” teachers
      • Teacher students
      • Students
    • Registration criteria
      • Qualification, priorities, etc.
    • Payment
funding
Funding
  • Costs
    • Travel, accommodation, meals ~ 800 CHF/person
    • Normally paid by schools/teachers – varies from school to school
  • Limitations
    • limited school budgets to be shared by all
    • Late decisions  complicates planning
    • teachers not replaced during a course
        •  course periods restricted to end June and end October
  • Other possible funding
    • “Stipendier”, fonds, EU-money, etc.
      • How efficient?
    • Is German trick applicable for Sweden/Scandinavia?
      • Courses for “interested people” – not specifically for teachers & students
        •  Federal Funds
        • EX. Germany: 1 M€ for 3 years

programme content2
Programme content
  • Course evaluation
      • In three words: Interesting – Inspiring – well organized
      • Liked best Cosmology/Antimatter – medical applications – cloud chamber
      • What to improve More breaks – time to think – understand
      • Follow-up Contact for questions & support – help setting up experiments for students
      • Usefulness Questionable; how to apply at school
          • ConclusionCourse is excellent (4.8/5) but support and follow-up is needed
support follow up
Support & follow-up
  • Course slides
      • Excellent and available online…
      • …but it is not enough
  • Tools for lab experiments
      • Cloud chamber description + support needed
      • Cosmic ray detection scintillator tool to be developed
      • Data analysis ATLAS, CMS, ALICE tools to be supported at schools
  • Teaching Materials
      • Some exist on EDU site; http://education.web.cern.ch/education/Chapter2/Intro.html
      • In English or German Needs translation + dispatching
      • Sharing between teachers ?
  • Feedback
      • Evaluation of results 2 – 5 years later
who could support follow up
Who could support & follow-up
  • Particle Physics students
    • To support and run International MasterClasses
    • To develop and run National/Regional MasterClasses
  • PhD students in Physics education (German programme)
    • To develop tools Scandinavian lab at CERN?
    • To build and run programmes
organization and run of programmes
Organization and run of Programmes
  • Availability of Swedish (Scandinavian) lecturers sometimes difficult
    • Senior engineers & physicists
    • Young PhD students
    • We are all very busy…
  • Better recognition and visibility in Sweden
  • SvenskaFysikerförbundet to make list of people who can participate
  • PhD students in Physics Education…
