Abstract

In 2007 the cooperation between the Department of Teaching and Didactics of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague and the German members of the project CITIES (Chemistry and Industry for Teachers in European Schools) was established. This paper presents information on the results of the cooperation and on a practical laboratory course developed for the further education of European chemistry teachers. According to the aims of the CITIES project, the new experiments presented in the course focuse on the connections between chemical industry and the school chemistry education and on the contributions of chemistry to the whole society. The course was realized for two groups of Czech secondary school chemistry teachers and the evaluation data were obtained from the questionnaire prepared by the German colleagues.
