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.

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.

Inquiry-Based Learning: Maths and Science in Life - T90

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, 102

Speakers

  1. Pete Sorensen - University of Nottingham
  2. Len Newton - University of Nottingham

Two of the three aims of the new Science National Curriculum for England focus on the development of an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science and of its uses and implications. Similar aims can be seen in science policy and curriculum documents internationally. This session reports on materials being developed in a European project, �Maths and Science in Life� (Mascil), aimed at helping teachers to develop approaches with an emphasis on scientific inquiry within authentic contexts.

Issues and opportunities in the new primary national curriculum - T177

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Palmer, 102

Speakers

  1. Stuart Naylor - Millgate House Education

In this workshop Stuart Naylor will identify key points from the new primary science Programmes of Study and non-statutory guidance and explore some of the important implications for schools. This will be an opportunity for sharing ideas with colleagues in order to identify good practice, voice concerns and think creatively about what next. Presented as part of NAIGS Day.

Explore the New OCR A-level Physics Qualifications for First Teaching in 2015 (Repeated) - T92

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, 108

Speakers

  1. TBC - OCR

Refreched and updated, an opportunity to explore the Physics A and Physics B (Advancing Physics) specifications. The session will include an overview of teh A and B specifications, and an update on the practical endorsement pilot.

Introducing Gaia - OC1

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:00

Location : Exhibition Marquee, Open Conference

Speakers

  1. Neil Herrington - Gaia's Company
  2. Peter Horton - Gaia's Company

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.

What is Evidence-Based Medicine? - T93

Friday 9th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Chemistry, LT 1

Speakers

  1. Prof Carl Heneghan - University of Oxford

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

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.
