Using Research to Shape, Inform and Improve Science Teaching

You’ll be supported to reflect on your practice, to improve, to better justify your approach and be better informed about how students learn. Your students will benefit from your improved understanding of the plasticity of the brain, or with exposure to some of the ideas in the course, will be better placed themselves to understand their own learning potential.

By participating on this course you’ll be expected to discuss your insights with colleagues, in particular combating neuroscience myths and being better placed to justify why certain teaching approaches are effective.

Managing Effective Practical Work

Practical work can be a barrier to the effective delivery of triple science as some teachers feel they do not have the confidence, time or ability to develop their students’ learning through practical work. You may also need support in understanding how practical work is assessed in triple science, how it can be managed effectively in your classroom and where to find engaging practical activities. Through this two x half day course you will explore these issues, reflect on how they impact on your teaching and develop ways of confidently using practical work to develop learning.
