Partners from 14 organisations, who are involved in STEM Professional Development (PD) activities all over Europe, worked on this ready-to-use guide of quality criteria in STEM PD. This guide aims at supporting STEM PD providers in reflecting on and further developing their work.
This guide follows a core premise: It should be ready-to-use. Thus, it should be both (a) easy to apply in daily STEM PD contexts and (b) challenging to initiate reflection about and beyond STEM PD. This guide is not just a review of literature on a theoretical level (even though this was the base for the selection of the quality criteria). Moreover, it also presents concrete examples illustrating its theoretical content. Thus, this guide also provides Network partners’ practical experiences regarding success and challenges in providing STEM PD.
The guide is explicitly not offering the only way to successful STEM PD. Rather, it offers opportunities for reflection. In particular, it aims to set an impulse to reflect on relevant criteria regarding STEM PD on a high quality level.
