“Meta-Scientific Literacies in the (Mis-) Information Age”, Erasmus+ (KA2)

The Eugenides Foundation Library participates as partner in the project “Meta-Scientific Literacies in the (Mis-) Information Age”, a new ERASMUS+ Teacher Academy project, that falls within the Key Action 2 – Skills and Innovation. The main objective of the project is to provide teachers with necessary competences and skills in order to empower secondary school students to act as competent effective democratic citizens in a (digital) world flooded by scientific mis-,dis- and malinformation. The 3-year project, coordinated by the University of Innsbruck, commenced on 1st June 2023 and will end on May 2026.

The SciLMi Teacher Academy will develop, pilot and evaluate cross-disciplinary blended intensive mobility programmes and trainings (BIP, BITs) for pre- and in-service teachers. It will provide the required transversal competences, digital skills and inclusive teaching strategies to educate the future generation to critically engage with socio-scientific issues, and research and evaluate scientific claims and arguments for decision-making and action. The BIP and BITs participants will be guided to compose lesson plans that encourage teachers to incorporate SciLMi skills into their day-to-day teaching practice.

The SciLMi Teacher Academy will build a pan-European Hub consisting of initial and continuous education providers, schools, teacher associations, education authorities, foundations, NGOs, libraries, science centres, etc. The network will be involved in the process and will facilitate the integration of meta-scientific literacy skills into the education systems across Europe.
