Aim of the group

Teacher quality is one of the most important factors influencing students' results. The improvement of school and university teachers training is the aim of WP1. It can be achieved with the help of following WP outcomes:

1. Best practice examples of important areas of chemistry teacher training, and a self-evaluation test for these areas;

2. A database of expertise in different teaching methods used at university level.
