11:00 - 12:00

Location : HumSS, 127

Speakers

  1. Martin Wesley - Sphere Science

Using children from one age group to help teach practical science to a younger age group is a tried and tested strategy. It enables plenty of practical work to take place safely, and allows the older children to consolidate their own knowledge and understanding. These activities also support the �working scientifically� aspect of the new Primary Curriculum.

There are new activities to develop practical skills, increased emphasis on maths, and the contexts have been enhanced with updated information. Existing SHAP teachers: come and see what's new. Everyone else: find out how SHAP can benefit your students, meet experienced SHAP teachers and find out what's involved in implementing the course.

Working with Others and Ethics - T144

11:00 - 12:00

Location : Chemistry, LT 2

Speakers

  1. John Oversby - University of Reading

Treating others involved in Action Research with a sense of fairness and justice is an important part of undertaking research. There are often quite different participants, including mentors, colleagues, adults who provide data, and students/ pupils who provide data. While this session is based on principles, I will deal with concrete examples of how to inform participants of their responsibilities and rights, how to collect and store consent, what data needs to be shared, ideas about confidentiality and anonymity, and requirements of data security and destruction. There are questions of protecting the reputation of institutions and individuals to be considered alongside research requirements to have open data and analysis. Science education research is a human matter, with a need to maintain and develop relationships.

Project 500: Promoting Science Reading for Pleasure - T143

Saturday 10th January 2015

11:00 - 12:00

Location : Henley, G04

Speakers

  1. Dr Ruth Jarman - Queen's University Belfast

'How to make a universe with 92 ingredients' - even the title of the book attracts attention and inside it is full of intriguing ideas and illustrations. It is typical of many science information books now being published which have the power to extend the knowledge and to excie the interest of children and young people. However, promoting science reading for pleasure is rarely a specific aim of our primary or secondary courses. This session presents ideas for encouraging such practice.
