Gluten Protein Deposition Mechanisms and their Potential Modification to Produce Novel Grain Products - T95

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, G10

Speakers

  1. Dr Paola Tosi - School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, University of Reading

Gluten proteins are the major protein fraction of the mature wheat grain and form a continuous network when wheat flour is mixed with water to give dough. The proteinaceous network confers viscosity and elasticity to doughs and defines their suitability for a particular end use. We explore how the distribution of gluten proteins in the endosperm might result in wheat flours with novel characteristics and so potentially varied uses.

How Genetics is Changing the Way We Think about Neurodegenerative Diseases - T96

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, G15

Speakers

  1. Dr Patrick Lewis - School of Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy, University of Reading

The number of people developingneurodegenerative diseases, such asdementia, is increasing rapidly as theglobal human population ages. Thereis an urgent need for new drugs, but todate we haven't really understood thechanges in biology that lead to the deathof brain cells. Research into the geneticsof neurodegeneration has proved aparticularly fruitful avenue of investigation,and I will talk about how discoveriesrelating to genetics have revolutionizedour understanding of neurodegeneration.

OCR Introduction to A-level Physics (Repeated) - T92

Approaches to Literacy in Science KS3&4 - T91

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, 208

Speakers

  1. Penny Travers - Pearson

This session will show how students can learn to express their scientific understanding using formal academic language both in speech and in writing. This will be exemplified through a scheme of work which incorporates the explicit teaching of language and grammar alongside key scientific concepts so enabling students to become skilled and confident communicators.

Dramatic Science - W48

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, 101

Speakers

  1. Deb McGregor - Oxford Brookes University
  2. Wendy Precious - Entrust

This workshop will show how you can employ more active, engaging, participatory and exciting ways to use drama to involve and engage your children in learning through and about science. There will be the opportunity to try some of the techniques so you can judge for yourself whether they are appropriate for your children. The activities shared will be those tried and tested through the projects funded by the Primary Science Teaching Trust.

IOP - Exoplanets Student Activity - W49

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : AMS, 133

Speakers

  1. Taj Bhutta - Institute of Physics

This new resource has been developed from a dedicated Stimulating Physics Network activity. It is now available to all schools offering five curriculum-linked enrichment activities for KS3. Use far-off planets to inspire students with physics in the classroom.

Earth Theme - Amazing Planet: Action-Packed Classroom Resources - W47

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Chemistry, LTG

Speakers

  1. Elizabeth Devon - Earthlearningidea
  2. Peter Kennett
  3. Chris King

Earthlearningidea activities in a dynamic interactive way to the largest possible audience at the ASE conference?' - the lecture-theatre presentation of 'Amazing planet - action-packed science' idea was born - with you as an interactive audience. Will this be successful? How many lecture-sized practical ideas for teaching about the Earth can we squeeze into 60 minutes? How will you be involved? Come and find out for yourselves.

Biology in the Real World - Space Flight: A Model of Human Ageing? - T89

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:15

Location : Palmer, 109

Speakers

  1. Prof Stephen Harridge - King's College London

With UK astronaut Major Tim Peake due to fly on a mission to the International Space Station in 2015, this lecture will consider the challenges of prolonged space flight on the body. It will consider how exposure to a micro gravity environment impacts on human physiology. With particular reference to skeletal muscle, it will compare and contrast these changes with those associated with the ageing process here on earth.

Developing Talk at KS4 (Repeated) - T94

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Carrington, 201

Speakers

  1. Jo Moules - Millgate House Education
  2. Jo Horlock - Millgate House Education

Discussion is an important element of science teaching from KS1 to KS3, but why does it have to stop? We'll consider ways of engaging students with talk, highlighting misconceptions, as formative assessment, and saving time with things that are already well understood. Stimulus materials are important factors in getting the more reluctant to express themselves. We will look at some new resources and more familiar ones, think about how to use them and have some fun on the way.

What is Evidence-Based Medicine? - T93

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : HumSS, 27 LT

Speakers

  1. Prof Carl Heneghan - University of Oxford

Join the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine to explore this topic in education.
