Xplore Health brings current vaccine research to secondary school teachers in Madrid

Xplore Health brings current vaccine research to secondary school teachers in Madrid

What are vaccines and what are they for? What benefits do they bring at an individual and collective level? What tests do they have to pass in order to be passed?

The new course "Vaccines: How to explain them in the classroom" offers secondary school teachers in the Community of Madrid a scientific update on current research in the field of vaccination and different educational resources to deal with this subject in secondary school classrooms. The course is organised within the framework of the Xplore Health project, by the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN) and with the collaboration of the Living Lab for Health at IrsiCaixa, EduCaixa and "la Caixa" Foundation.

Those attending the course will have the chance to participate in different scientific updating sessions given by experts in vaccination. These sessions will deal with topics such as health research on vaccines, how vaccines work, what their components are and the benefits they bring us, and some of the research currently being carried out in this field will be made known. In addition, they will participate in workshops in which they will put into practice a wide variety of multimedia tools, games of reflection and debate and protocols of experiments, to deal with vaccine research through educational innovation methodologies, such as project based learning, group dynamics and formative evaluation.

This course is free of charge and is aimed at 30 secondary school teachers of the Madrid Community. It consists of 15 teaching hours divided into 12 classroom hours and 3 non-attendance hours.
