I’m going to be presenting the above paper on International Day (“Science Education without Frontiers”) at the Association for Science Education Annual Conference 2015 (University of Reading, UK, 7-10 January).

I’ll be talking about the results of our SkypeRead:Europa project. With the support of Start Motion Pictures, we’re bringing together STEM practitioners from across the world to do read-throughs of the movie “Europa Report”. The aims of the project are to improve English-language communication and teamworking skills.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It’s an area where cross-border collaboration is becoming increasingly important – but it’s also an area where, according to studies, there is a lack of “teamworking” and “communication” skills.
We’re just started recruiting non-native English-speaking STEM professionals and students for our SkypeRead:Europa study. If you know someone who might be interested in joining us, we’d love to hear from them!
