These papers will be part of the Proceedings book of to be given to all participants at the beginning of the Summer School.

There is an increasing awareness about the innovative practices of teachers in their schools and EAAE Summer Schools are a place to share these practices. Pair sharing of innovative practices seeks to increase collaboration, promote informal learning, and boost productivity within and across research groups. For collaboration, it offers people the chance to interact with many partners with diverse perspectives and expertise, and to get to know them better through discussion of the pros and cons of each other’s experiences. From simple demonstrations to projects developed with students, all activities are welcomed to be shared.
