Chemistry Learning Resources using 3D Crystal Structures - W09

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : AMS, G7

Speakers

  1. Dr Peter Hoare - Newcastle University
  2. Dr Susan Henderson - Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre

This workshop will introduce the free WebCSD platform and our worksheets which use it to teach fundamental chemical concepts for UK A-level and equivalent courses and also in foundation and early years undergraduate chemistry courses. The worksheets were produced by Nuffield Bursary students and an MChem project student and there are further worksheets and new topics planned. The resources were widely trialled in the UK and abroad and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from both students and teachers.

Resources and Ideas for Teaching Animal Behaviour - T27

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, 208

Speakers

  1. Charlotte Evans - Cardiff University

Animal behaviour is an engaging subject that is taught in both science and psychology and throughout the key stages. In this workshop, Charlotte the education officer from the Association For The Study Of Animal Behaviour (ASAB), will provide a number of practical ideas and resources for all key stages. ASAB produces materials for teaching animal behaviour incorporating 'How Science Works', provides advice on behavioural methods, ethics in animal behaviour teaching and rough guides to animals commonly used in behaviour work.

Earth Theme - Interactive Earth Science for the New KS3 Curriculum - W13

11:30 - 13:00

Location : Chemistry, Lab G

Speakers

  1. Elizabeth Devon - Earth Science Education Unit (ESEU)
  2. Peter Kennett
  3. Chris King

Now that the new KS3 science curriculum has been finalised, we know that the rock cycle will form a central part of the Earth science. But how can you teach this abstract cycle in interactive an engaging in ways that pupils will find relevant? Come and test a range of activities designed to 'bring the cycle to life' for pupils and to ensure dynamic teaching.

Developing Talk at KS4 (Repeated) - T25

Thursday 8th 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.

The Royal Society Vision for the Future of Science and Mathematics Education - BC04

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Booked course, pre-registration required. Confirmed upon booking.

The Royal Society has set out a vision for how the UK can develop an inspiring and high performing science and mathematics education system over the next 15 to 20 years. The world in 2030 will be very different to that of today. Major changes in population numbers, the environment and new technologies are likely. People with relevant skills and knowledge will be better equipped to adapt to this uncertain future. As we depend on science and technology more and more, people will increasingly need a scientific understanding in order to take part in democratic decision-making and our shared culture. A committee made up of eminent scientists, mathematicians and teachers has asked questions about our educational institutions, teaching workforce, curriculum, assessment and accountability mechanisms. They want the UK to have inspirational educational systems which develop scientific and technologically informed, engaged citizens as well as appropriate numbers of people qualified to take up science and technology-based careers. At this event you will be able to find out what the Royal Society believes are the essential features of a future world-class, high-performing education system for science and mathematics in order to prepare young people for the future.
