Dear All,


I look forward to meeting and working with you in the next STEM Education seminar on 11-12 June. During the last session, we discussed that the June seminar should be a kind of workshop, where everyone can raise topics needed for their current work. Thus, we can discuss these requested topics more in detail during the sessions. There were already topics demanded in May, which included the discussion of more in depth quantitative methods. So that, I will plan to give further details on Factor and Regression Analyses (please bring your computers). But, since we will talk about statistics, I thought it would be interesting to see how statistics and probability are taught in schools around the world and what kinds of research have been done and could be done on these topics. Attached are two papers in this area, which could give us a good starting point for discussion.


Nevertheless, please send me your requests until 9 June on the topics that you wish to discuss during the sessions and I will prepare materials to support the ideas. In addition, as usual, please prepare a 5-minute presentation about your progress in your research and the group will give you feedback for improvement. 


Let me know if you have any questions and see you in two weeks.


Kind regards,
