EDEN Open Classroom 2019

Creating conditions for deeper learning in science

The event of the Open Classroom Conference (OCC) series will take place on 29 and 30 June 2019. Ellinogermaniki Agogi, Athens co-organises the event with European Distance and E-Learning Network.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers, practitioners and decision makers from all around the world to investigate the concepts of Deeper Learning, the conditions under which it could lead students to develop mastery in scientific subjects and the methods how these achievements can be assessed.

Deeper Learning is usually associated with the concept that the learners have to achieve excellence at school through an equitable educational system. The concept has been used both to describe a set of competencies or educational objectives and to characterise a way of learning (or process) that promotes these competencies. Deeper Learning encompasses the understanding of core academic content, the ability to apply that understanding to novel problems and situations, alongside with the development of a range of competencies such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, self-directed learning and developing an academic mindset.

The International Conference on Deeper Learning in Science will explore the following areas:

  • Deeper Learning in Science through Arts
  • Enhancing Science Education through Digital Storytelling
  • Inquiry-Based Learning
  • Creativity in Science Education
  • Open School Culture
