“Collaborate! Communicate! Improving cross-border communication and teamworking within STEM”

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!
