CERG: Inclusive practice, how far has science education come since the Warnock report? - S14

Friday 6th January 2017

15:00 - 16:00

Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Dr Jane Essex - Brunel University London

The lecture will look at the extent to which the notion of inclusive practice, with specific reference to provision for SEND but also at social inclusion more widely, has impacted upon science teaching, and explore some of the barriers which continue to prevail in science education.

Learning counter-intuitive concepts - T109

Friday 6th January 2017

15:00 - 16:00

Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Professor Andy Tolmie - UCL Institute of Education
  2. Professor Derek Bell

Children's ability to understand counter-intuitive concepts in science and maths is often limited by their ability to inhibit either direct perceptual evidence or pre-existing beliefs. This session will, using evidence from educational neuroscience examine why this is so and explore how to address these challenges. It will also explain how you might get involved with the UnLocke Project led by the Centre for Educational Neuroscience, London in partnership with Learnus.

Culturally enriched curricula - T110

Friday 6th January 2017

15:00 - 16:30

Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Rukhsana Yaqoob - Independent Educational Consultant
  2. Marianne Cutler - ASE

Join us to explore the importance of enriching school curricula in order to highlight the shared cultural and scientific inheritance of humanity. We can help to redress the historical inaccuracies that exist in relation to major world civilisations which, taken together, have significantly contributed to our modern world. We will also look at some of the dedicated resources created by Curriculum Enrichment for the Future to make the process of introducing such ideas into the classroom, easier for both teachers and pupils.

Frontier Science: Inspired by nature - using weak bonds to make new materials - T106

Friday 6th January 2017

15:00 - 16:00

Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Professor Wayne Hayes - Department of Chemistry, University of Reading

This talk will describe how chemists are now able to mimic nature and use weak non-covalent interactions to generate new polymeric materials that are dynamic and able to heal themselves when subject to damage. Simple chemistries have been used to make short polymer chains that feature 'sticky' yet reversible chain ends and these allow infinite networks to form thus generating robust rubbery materials. These materials have been found to be biocompatible and also adhesive in nature leading to the next generation of surface coatings such as healable wound dressings or drug delivery systems.
