The National “Express Yourself” Conference will be held in EGO10 (Main Building) in the University of Limerick on the 20th March from 10am-1pm. This conference marks the end of the first year involvement in the FP7 funded project, Chain Reaction: A Sustainable Approach to Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) which focuses on the professional development of teachers towards IBSE. The University of Limerick, specifically the EPS and the NCE-MSTL, is the Irish Partner in this European funded project.
IBSE is a specific teaching methodology where the focus is on students inquiring into their own learning and is seen an inductive approach to the teaching of science with an emphasis on the experimental process.
The conference involves secondary school students from four different schools sharing their experience of IBSE in the classroom and is viewed as a celebration of their work to date.
Please RSVP to Louise Lehane at Louise.Lehane@ul.ie if you would like to attend this event.
