Supporting mathematics and science teachers in addressing diversity and promoting fundamental values

About of the MaSDiV project:

The objective of MaSDiV is to support science and mathematics teachers in: (1) Delivering inclusive education and basic skills for all and thus address underachievement; (2) promoting fundamental values and enhancing active citizenship which also builds social and civic competences; and (3) promoting intercultural learning.

MaSDiV (2017-2020) is a high-level research and evaluation project involving leading mathematics and science education institutes from across Europe and 11 ministries of education. The MaSDiV partners will develop and implement a professional development course for mathematics and science teachers to better equip them to promote science and mathematics literacy for all students (including disadvantaged students from diverse cultural and social backgrounds) together with the learning of fundamental values in multicultural settings. Further, we will rigorously evaluate this course using a multimethod research design. In this policy experimentation measure (funded within Erasmus+ Key Action 3), the aim is to scale-up successful measures across Europe.
