Hi and welcome to the European Schoolnet Academy.
The Academy is a platform where you can learn about innovation in the school and classroom through online professional development courses for teachers in primary and secondary schools.
The courses offered on this platform are completely free of charge. They will offer you an introduction to key concepts and ideas that are relevant to developing your practice and will provide you with the opportunity to discuss these ideas and share your experiences with your peers. We hope that by attending these courses and by engaging with your peers you will feel empowered and inspired to try out something new in your practice.
The Academy is very much an experiment and we rely on your participation and feedback to make this project a success. So please use this opportunity, learn and connect with your peers and let us know what you think.
We look forward to seeing you on one of the courses! Happy learning...

Our Wonderful Universe
The basic idea of the Our Wonderful Universe MOOC is to empower teachers from all levels of educations to teach space and astronomy related topics to their students. The MOOC is built in such a way so that all teachers can participate, focusing especially on those who are interested in astronomy but never had the opportunity to learn more about it or have very little background information and do not feel comfortable to communicate basic information about our universe to their students.
