For the EuroSTEAM project we have 7 work packages which are lead by various partners. Please choose a work package below to see details on which partner is the lead for that work package in particular.
The WP lead for project management and preparation of the project is (SWC) P1. Their main role is the overall management, coordination and implementation of the project throughout its duration and to ensure the timely execution and fulfillment of each expected result. All participants will be expected to contribute to management and coordination through the internal management of their own procedures for European projects.
WP2 extends throughout the duration of the project, focusing on quality assurance of the project’s processes and consistency of output across projects strands and partner organisations. A dedicated quality assurance plan for the EuroSTEAM project will be finalised at the commencement of the project. The quality assurance plan will provide guidelines regarding the roles of different partners, their responsibilities, the information exchange procedures among partners, measures/tools to be used and when. This will also contain the Risk Register and how corrective action will be taken in a timely manner. For each activity ETIC will complete a quality assurance report form collecting all available information and reviewing whether quality standards are met. This will be shared with all partners.
This work package will cover activity associated with the development of a comparative analysis report to identify the underachievement of basic maths, science and literacy skills in school learners across 5 EU countries and to analyse the impact of using innovative and problem-based active learning techniques to overcome the challenges of teaching and learning in these subjects. The tasks involved will include a comparative needs analysis report, a research study in each partner country to identify best practice and the final coordination of the information into a Comparative Analysis Report.
This work package will cover activity associated with the development curricula and course materials for the delivery of effective, innovative and multidisciplinary maths, science and literacy education through the use of STEAM Camps. The tangible resources developed will include demonstration videos, step-by-step manuals, presentations, videos, worksheets that will be used by ‘Camp leaders’ to deliver STEAM Camps.
This work package will cover activity associated with the development of an open source online toolkit to enable teachers across Europe to independently deliver STEAM camps via innovative teaching methods. The online toolkit will provide access to all material including videos, animations, power points, training materials, and worksheets to deliver the STEAM camps with a view to improving maths, science and literacy skills.
WP6 focuses on the implementation of the dissemination and exploitation strategy. It includes the preparation of dissemination materials and the organisation of dissemination activities that will raise awareness about the EuroSTEAM results. This will be disseminated to schools, teachers, educational stakeholders and policy makers across Europe.
WP7 is about the evaluation of learning outcomes, expected impact and results, including internal and independent external impact assessments. Feedback will be integrated at key points of the design, development and evaluation work. Based on the project status, different evaluation methods will take place, such as interviews with stakeholders, teachers and school pupils, measurement of diffusion of learning, peer reviews, etc. Additionally, an independent external evaluation will be carried out.
