Science Teaching: What Works? - T33

Thursday 8th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Carrington, 201

Speakers

  1. Stuart Naylor - Millgate House Education
  2. Jo Moules - Millgate House Education

Teaching isn't an evidence-based profession in the same way as medicine is. However that doesn't mean that we should ignore whatever evidence is available. This thought-provoking session lifts the lid on what really works in the classroom and how we know. It draws on extensive research evidence of successful classroom practice, but focuses on the practicalities of science teaching and learning.

Rich Science Teaching and Learning - T37

Thursday 8th January 2015

14:00 - 16:00

Location : Henley, G04

Speakers

  1. Dr Wai Yi Feng - University of Cambridge
  2. Dr Judith Hillier - University of Oxford
  3. Dr Anne Bowker - King's College London

This session reports on a Royal Society International Scientific Meeting held in September 2014, focusing on three key questions: What sort of science teachers do we want in our schools? How should science teachers' subject-specific professional learning needs be met? How can we make best use of formal educational provisions and informal learning opportunities to engage all students in STEM? Presentations of leading researchers in science education and discussions addressing these questions will be summarised for a teacher audience.

Delivering Quality PSHE Education - T41

Thursday 8th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Chemistry, LT1

Speakers

  1. Beverley Hoekstra - Public Health England

Much of the PSHE curriculum falls to the responsibility of science educators. The new curriculum and PSHE integration presents teachers with further challenges. The e-Bug team at Public Health England are conducting qualitative research with teachers and school nurses to determine who is teaching PSHE microbiology topics (hand hygiene, antibiotics, vaccinations etc.) and what resources are necessary to assist educators. The findings will be presented, and provide valuable lessons for science educators about delivering quality PSHE education.

Young Innovators Prize 2015: A Pathway to University - T39

Thursday 8th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Palmer, 106

Speakers

  1. Philip Singleton - Millennium Point

Millennium Point is an inspiring venue whose objectives are to exemplify science, technology and learning. To reflect these objectives, it is launching the Young Innovators Prize which will see the organisation sponsor a young person, enabling them to attend university in a science or technology related subject for three years. Millennium Point will work with five schools in the most deprived areas of Birmingham, creating an opportunity for bright, driven students for whom further education is normally out of reach.
