Pedagogical Advisor - Science team
January 2010 --- December 2014
Since 2013, as part of the European Schoolnet Academy project, I was in charge of the "Innovative Practices for Engaging STEM Teaching" course. This was a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) massive online professional development course for teachers which I created and coordinated. Additionally, I worked on the Go-Lab project which opens up online science remote and virtual laboratories for the large-scale use in (STEM) education, particularly in relation to curriculum analysis in European countries. Previously, I took part of other EU funded projects such as Spring Day for Europe 2010 (2002-2010) and U4energy (2010-2012), where I was responsible of the conception, development and implementation of the competitions proposed to schools across Europe and beyond. In U4energy I was also in charge of the coordination of national level networks involved in the project dissemination.
