  • A free online course

The Course of the Erasmus+ project "Towards a new model of Teachers' Professional Competence Development on Climate Change" (acronym: ClimaTePD) aims at promoting subject-specific and cross-disciplinary competences for Climate Education at secondary school level.

The training course aims to show possibilities of integrating climate education topics in the different subjects and to enable teachers to create teaching concepts on the central problems of climate change and climate protection.

The ClimaTePD addresses in-service secondary school teachers and student teachers in developing digital competences and teaching skills on climate change education.

The in-service training is divided into six main learning units. These support teachers in

understand and recognise the basics and complex mechanisms of climate change and how the topic of climate change can be integrated into different subjects (Introduction Unit A.1 and A.2 Introduction).

apply and adapt the teaching scenarios developed in the CLIMATePD project (Interaction Unit B.1 and B.2 Interaction);

develop their own teaching scenarios and reflect on their own teaching activities based on the acquired knowledge (Construction Unit C.1 and C.2).

Learning Objectives

Understand climate change
Learn basic concepts of climate education
Learn about concepts and tools of inquiry-based learning in schools
Learn about the concepts and tools of gamification in schools
Understand and apply teaching scenarios for teaching climate change
Adapt teaching scenarios to your specific teaching needs
Develop own teaching scenarios

Learning format

The training takes place online, independent of time and space. There are no fixed times when work has to be done. The majority of all activities are asynchronous. In some cases and to encourage collaboration and interaction, synchronous activities take place.

In order to receive a certificate, participants must achieve xx points out of 100.

The additional points earned can be used to skip one or more mandatory activities. (Depending on the participation of the learners, ___ or more extra points can be awarded).

 Although the online course offered as part of the ClimatePD project has officially concluded, the training platform and the extensive resource repository continue to be readily available, serving as a dynamic and accessible MOOC for both in-service educators and student teachers. The valuable educational resources and learning opportunities provided by the project remain accessible and open to a wide audience, fostering ongoing professional development and knowledge dissemination in the field of climate education.
