About this journal. The United States has developed as a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers, and innovators. In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM.
Chapter 1, Learning by Doing: Learning to Implement the TEI Guidelines Through Digital Classics Publication” by Stella Dee, Maryam Foradi and Filip Šarić, focuses on how adult learners with existing knowledge in the humanities, specifically in the field of Classics, can approach and learn the TEI guidelines for the encoding of structured data in XML in a digital (online) environment. It includes a short digression on the history of learning methods, from ‘chalk-to-talk,’ to class discussion, and to more recent digital learning approaches for students of higher education. The chapter emphasizes that classicists need only to learn about TEI in relation to their particular activities or projects.
The Polish authorities presented and discussed with the PSF panel of experts the strengths and weaknesses of the Polish R&I system and the rationale behind the PSF Peer Review which will form an important background for the forthcoming reforms of Higher Education and Science. The reforms will be based on three pillars proposed in the new Strategy for Higher Education and Science: Constitution for Science, Innovations for the economy, and Science for You The operational recommendations tackling such issues as models of higher education institutions and their evaluation, career development of researchers, links between the higher education sector and the other actors of the innovation system as well as the internationalisation of the science and higher education sectors, will be released by the PSF panel in September 2017.
Together, we can create new solutions in science education and outreach, whether that means a course, program, training, event, grant proposal, learning community, or something else. If you need a partner with a larger view of science across campus and longstanding connections in the surrounding community, invite us into your project.

The Department of Science Teaching at the Weizmann Institute was created in 1968 by Prof. Amos De Shalit. Its main mission is to advance the field of science and mathematics education at large, and to advance science and mathematics education in Israel. A central goal of the department is to develop academic and practical leadership in mathematics and science education.
