RRI in practice for schools - Handbook for teachers

Under the RRI project, European Schoolnet has developed an educational handbook entitled RRI in practice for schools. Handbook for teachers.

The handbook aim to help educators to develop and implement RRI oriented practices in the classroom as well as to include self-reflection processes in their daily practices.

The handbook contains a variety of resources.  It includes a set of short exercises to be used as a starting point to analyze how RRI-oriented educators' practices are, specifically focused on the mapping of RRI obstacles and opportunities, the development of school project simulations and of exercises involving different stakeholders.

The documents' main feature is a set of guidelines and practice templates designed to integrate RRI in everyday school activities and, specifically, to support educators in designing academic practices integrating RRI dimensions and principles.

The set of guidelines provides with instructions to set up a dynamic process of creation of educational resources while fostering capacity building and cooperation among teachers and among any other relevant stakeholders in the educational community. The practice templates are applicable to different subjects and for both primary and secondary school levels, depending on the activity. Particularly, the set contains a general prototype that describes the templates' rationale any that can be used for any type of educational practice and three extra templates designed for specific activities, namely: (1) Getting started with RRI (2) Experiments and labs activities and (3) Reflection and dissemination.

Overall, this resource is intended to help teachers among Europe to become more RRI-oriented in their daily practices!
