Summary

Who is this course for?

This is a professional development course for teachers of science to students aged 11-19 years, who are providing support for students to learn at home. Heads of science departments may also find this course useful to devise their approach to home teaching.

What subjects are covered on the course?

  • setting expectations for time management and learning routines
  • planning for synchronous and asynchronous learning
  • simple tools to support home learning tasks
  • assessing student learning remotely and providing feedback
  • teaching practical science remotely

Why should learners join this course?

This course will support teachers of science to develop new teaching strategies for supporting learning at home. We will address issues around student engagement and time management, assessment and feedback, practical science and the role of parents.

Whilst teaching remotely may be new, you will be supported to draw upon what you already know and the resources you have already to hand. You will explore a variety of asynchronous teaching and learning tools, and collaborate with other teachers in designing teaching sequences.

Outcomes
