Cooperation between policy and PD practice
The European STEM PD NET acknowledges the importance of collaboration between policy makers and professional development centres, in order to improve education in the STEM area. These key actors need to communicate and cooperate in order to overcome the challenges in providing high quality professional development and support teachers in delivering high-quality STEM education for all students.
STEM PD Net contributes information to policy makers through the development of a set of policy briefings in order to establish and strengthen cooperation with policy makers.
These policy briefings are intended to target policy makers’ needs and summarize key messages concerning professional development in the STEM area.
STEM PD Net is actively cooperating with the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, the Ministry of Education and Science Lithuania and the Turkish Ministry of National Education as partners in the network and is seeking for further collaboration.
