MARCH's webinars report presents an outline of the organisation and implementation of the webinar series that were delivered during the MARCH project. It describes the process whereby the webinars were designed and delivered, including the format of previous dissemination activities and feedback from participants after the implementation of the webinars. Furthermore, the report describes the key outcomes of the webinars, highlights the challenges encountered in each country and gives key recommendations after the experience gained from the series of 11 webinars.
The webinars were coordinated by Educational Radio-Television (EduTV) from May 2015 to December 2016, who also organised six webinars in Greece (see: 1st, 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th and 10th webinars). The partner Ciência Viva organised two webinars in Portugal (see: 5th and 9th webinars), the British Science Association (BSA) in the UK organised one (see: 3rd webinar), Forum Democrit organised the 8th webinar in Bulgaria and Jungvornweg organised the final webinar (see: 11th webinar) in Germany.
The webinars all focussed on topics emerging from the Innovation Swap Workshops and involved a total of 269 educators and 181 secondary students. At least two speakers and a moderator were involved, and in all cases, at least one speaker was a teacher of STEM subjects who had implemented a good practice or/and an innovative methodology in teaching STEM. The second speaker was either a teacher of STEM or an expert (researcher or/and scientist) on STEM topics. In two webinars (one in Greece and one in Portugal), students were among speakers. At the beginning of each webinar session, there was a short introduction of the goals and methods of the MARCH project. The audience in most webinars was secondary education teachers, some teachers of primary education. Also students participated actively in four of the webinars.
