Sustainable learning of natural sciences on the basis of a new learning approach
An integrated natural subjects didactics laboratory is created to improve the study, teaching and research activities in the context of both general education and higher education through various activities.
The establishment of the laboratory is necessitated by the need to increase the cognitive involvement of young people in natural sciences and thus the interest that would continue at the level of higher education, including in the fields related to teacher education.
In addition to the above, it is important to update the development of university didactics: Raise the level of teacher education by developing student-centred learning scenarios, where the student focuses on better knowledge and consideration of the cognitive processes, studying, problem-based and phenomenal learning, along with modern technological solutions. In addition to supplement the competences of active teachers in creating integrated learning scenarios through innovation laboratory-type training. The didactical laboratory created in cooperation with the institutions helps to strengthen science education in Estonia through various activities.
