On the afternoon of February 22, 2023, the SSI-L Cooperation and Research Project Seminar at the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University was held in Conference Room 614, Boxue Building, Senior High School Department. Lin Jing, director of the Science Development Department of the Collaborative Innovation Center of Assessment for Basic Education Quality, Peng Menghua, head of the Disciplinary Guidance Expert Team of the SSI-L Project, and members of the SSI-L project team attended the meeting. Xiang Hongying, vice principal of the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University, Jiang Tao, deputy director of the Teaching Office, and members of the SSI-L Teachers Association discussed the SSI-L based interdisciplinary teaching cooperation research carried out by the school. The meeting was chaired by Mr. Han Lixin from the Physics Team of the Senior High School Department at the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University.
At the beginning of the meeting, vice principal Xiang Hongying spoke highly of the cooperative research, expressed congratulations to all, and put forward her requirements and expectations. SSI-L is a path to achieve interdisciplinary teaching, which helps to promote cooperation and integration between disciplines, and is conducive to expanding students’ higher-order thinking and abilities such as critical thinking. Xiang hoped that the final project results can be presented not only in curriculum design, but also in academic research articles.
Then, Mr. Han Lixin introduced the SSI-L project and the origin of the school’s SSI-L interdisciplinary teaching. The project started in December 2020, and experienced the improvement and iteration of many projects, such as “Electroacoustic Musical Instruments—Keeping Tradition or Pioneering Innovation” and “Solar Photovoltaic System”. During this period, the school established the SSI-L Teachers Association and reached cooperation with the SSI-L project team at BNU. The two teams have jointly conducted research, developed SSI-L curriculum, and preliminarily formed a cooperation framework of “expert team-teachers association-teachers”.
Next, Dr. Lin Jing, head of the SSI-L Project, further clarified the research connotation and purpose of the SSI-L project and emphasized the importance of interdisciplinary practice in SSI learning. She said that the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University, as a directly affiliated school of BNU, has highly qualified teachers and excellent students, and that it is expected to achieve the goal of promoting students’ development and teachers’ development in this cooperative research.
Afterwards, He Weiwei from the project team shared a themed presentation on “Collecting Procedural Materials”. She said that the procedural materials in project research include teacher’s works, student’s works, classroom audios and videos, activity materials, teacher’s reflections, seminar minutes, etc. The timely collection and arrangement of procedural materials helps teachers develop teaching cases, organize journal articles and other achievements, and expand the school’s SSI-L course database.
Finally, all teachers had a detailed discussion on the interdisciplinary cooperation and evaluation methods of the project “Electroacoustic Musical Instruments-Keeping Tradition or Pioneering Innovation”. Lin Jing and Peng Menghua offered suggestions.
The SSI-L project is the school’s further inquiry into interdisciplinary teaching. It aims to promote curriculum development, facilitate teacher’s development, and lead students to obtain all-round development through collaborative research. It is believed that under the guidance of all experts, the SSI-L project at the Second Affiliated Middle School of Beijing Normal University will be carried out smoothly.
