The PROFILES project – divided in eight work packages (WP) – aims at disseminating (WP8) Inquiry-Based Science Education (IBSE). To achieve this, the PROFILES partners are using and conducting innovative learning environments (PROFILES type Modules; WP4) and programmes for the enhancement of teachers’ continuous professional development (WP5). Both supportive action strategies are supposed to raise the self-efficacy of science teachers to enable them to take ownership in more effective ways in science teaching (WP6), so as much students as possible should benefit from the PROFILES teaching modules and approaches (WP7). All participants involved in the PROFILES project are supported by stakeholders from different areas of society (WP3).

Overviewsof the PROFILES project are provided in the partners’ national languages.

Newsof the PROFILES project are permanently updated and the PROFILES Newsletters are available in English as well as in the national languages of the PROFILES consortium partners.

The PROFILES project has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement no. 266589
