Interdisciplinarity: goals and conditions

For sure, the expected result is not that one researcher ‘absorbs’ the others who become superfluous.”

Active Training Apprenticeships for Mathematics and Physics School Teachers

tirocinio-formativo-attivo-secondo-cicloIn a.y. 2012/2013 I have taught a laboratory in the new Italian teachers training course for high school teachers, subject areas 47 (mathematics) e 49 (mathematics and physics).

To know more about this course and its institutional problems see, for example, this article on the University of Torino’s journal Rivista di Lingue e Letterature Straniere e Culture Moderne, or this document of the European Parliament.

Some of the teaching materials I used are on Academia.edu.
