Case Studies

  • Deniz Aydemir, Turkey

    "Before Amgen Teach I was preparing the experiments on my own, while the students were just watching. Sometimes, I was telling them what t to do and then I was preparing the environment for the experiment. However, when I started to implement inquiry-based science education in my classroom, I observed that my students could design much more creative experiments and make measurements in order to find answers to their questions and to support their claims."

    "After the training, I realised I should be a guide for my students to help them construct scientific concepts for themselves. Adopting this new paradigm has made me feel much more comfortable in the classroom. I prepare a suitable environment or classroom atmosphere for my students to ask appropriate questions and find answers by themselves."
