What is TEMI?
Teaching Enquiry with Mysteries Incorporated
A teacher training project across Europe
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 2
What is TEMI?
Teaching Enquiry with Mysteries Incorporated (TEMI) is a € 3.5m EU-
funded initiative, which over the next three years will help transform
how STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) are
taught in classrooms.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 3
What is TEMI?
TEMI is a 42-month science education project, funded by the European
Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7),
category Capacities, Science in Society, Coordination Action.
Call identifier: FP7-SCIENCE-IN-SOCIETY-2012-1
Topic SiS.2012.2.2.1-1: Supporting actions on Innovation in the
classroom: teacher training on inquiry based teaching methods on a
large scale in Europe.

FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403
Why TEMI?
To help improve science and mathematics
teaching practices across Europe, introducing a
new teaching paradigm.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 7
Why TEMI?
Inquiry based science education (IBSE)
stimulates critical and creative
thinking, revealing the process behind the
solutions of scientific problems.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 8
What are TEMI objectives?
• To develop and evaluate new IBSE delivery methods;
• To nurture a relationship between stakeholders;
• To develop teacher training courses;
• To create and sustain teachers communities;
• To define and evaluate a tool set for IBSE training
methods;
• To develop a legacy strategy.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 9
What are the major challenges for teachers to
introduce IBSE in the classroom?
• To teach concepts while facilitating investigation;
• To fit curriculum requirements;
• To improve students' performance;
• To engage all students;
• To find good examples.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 10
Why is TEMI innovative?
• It incorporates mysteries as pivot;
• It considers communication skills as part of the teaching
process;
• It introduces new tools (e.g. theatre) for coaching;
• It changes the teacher-students dialogue.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 11
Training methodology
CPD aims to embed 4 innovations in teacher‟s practice:
• Create curiosity with Mysteries
• Teach concepts with the 5E learning cycle
• Teach skills with Gradual Release of Responsibility
• Maintain motivation with Showmanship
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 12
What is a science mystery?
In science education, a mystery is a
phenomenon or event that provokes the
perception of suspense and wonder in the
learner to initiate an emotionally-laden “want to
know”-feeling which leads to a raise in curiosity
and which initiates the posing of questions to be
answered by inquiry and problem-solving
activities.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 13
A mystery is a good mystery for a classroom enquiry if
• it can be investigated and explained scientifically and is within the competency
of the students involved
• provides affective engagement for the students
• generates curiosity and leads to student questions
• „problemmatises‟ or makes knowledge and inquiry skills part of the answer to
the mystery
• covers a sufficient part of the nationally assessed curriculum to justify time
spent
• is simple enough to be a „discrepant event‟, and generate cognitive conflict
• the time between mystery and answer is limited (1-2 lessons) is introduced by
a pedagogy that relies on the mystery itself
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 14
A mystery is a bad mystery for a classroom enquiry if
• provides engagement for the teacher only, but the students are not excited
• generates little curiosity and the teacher has to do all the work
• is answered by science concepts that are too difficult for students to grasp
• is peripheral to the subject content of the curriculum
• is too complex, and students explain it away as „magic‟ (a trick that I don‟t need
to explain)
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 15
What does TEMI offer to teachers?
• New skills to engage their students;
• Excellently focused resources;
• Extended support to effectively introduce new
teaching paradigms;
• Training sessions.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 16
What kind of training does TEMI provide?
TEMI trainers will implement innovative training
programmes: enquiry labs.
An enquiry lab is a training experience in which the
core scientific concepts meet the emotional
engaging activity of solving mysteries.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 17
What kind of training does TEMI provide?
Each partner will train 6 cohorts.
A cohort is a group of trainee teachers, more experienced
in-service teachers and teachers from “difficult schools”.
Training will consist in 2 full days of training (or an
equivalent period divided into several session over more
days).
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 18
Who is involved in TEMI training?
Enquiry labs will benefit from the contribution of
scientist and communication professionals (e.g.
actors, communication experts, etc...) to mentor
teachers in the transition toward an alternative
teaching paradigm.
FP7-Science-in-Society-2012-1, Grant Agreement N. 321403 19
Who is TEMI for?
Temi is for teachers across Europe.
A spoke and hub model for coordination and
delivery allows the project to respond to local
needs while maintaining an overall EU-wide
sharing of best practices and reporting.

through the intensive core training programme.
Trained teachers will mentor other teachers.
The cascade effect should lead to 1,620 to 2,430
teachers involved across the EU.
