Project Summary

As stated in the application, the ARTIST project sees science and technology in the heart of every modern society and highly relevant for the sustainable development of our future. Based on this assumption, the ARTIST consortium described the need for responsible investment in science and engineering for raising wealth and development of the present and future of any modern society. It was also acknowledged that all modern societies need a substantial part of the young generation to be interested, motivated and well prepared to embark in careers in science and engineering. The project Action Research to Innovate Science Teaching & Career Orientation (ARTIST) contributed to these goals by helping develop innovations in science education and for career orientation among the young generation in the participating countries. This was done by investing in the skills of science teachers and teacher educators concerning evidence-based innovation of science teaching and promotion of career orientation by action research and self-study. ARTIST helped improving science education by promoting teacher skills in doing action research and related small-scale innovation studies in their science classrooms supported by HEIs across Europe and Asia. Teacher education activities and corresponding materials were developed and applied in teacher education courses to enable teachers and teacher educators to innovate science teaching based on self-generated evidence. These materials are available in all relevant languages in the participating countries, namely a guidebook with theoretical resources, practical activities and illustrative cases and a PPT toolkit to be used in action research seminars. Case studies for innovations in science teaching were conducted, documented and exchanged across the ARTIST consortium and published via the ARTIST website. ARTIST centres were founded to act in the future as contact points and providers of competence to support teachers and schools in their ongoing process of educational reform and innovation. ARTIST networks were founded comprising HEIs, schools and business partners to support the process of curriculum innovation and career orientation. The networks were established to support teachers and schools in these processes via supportive materials on the ARTIST website and available competence in the ARTIST centres. A new journal was founded in 2018 as a place to publish and exchange innovations in science education, namely the journal Action Research and Innovation in Science Education (ARISE). The journal now completed its second volume and will be continued after the funding period.
