Effective practical demonstration involves more than is more than just showing students a particular experiment.  You will consider how to set the practical up, where to position students, how to keep their focus during the demonstration and how to assess the learning intentions.  It is intended for early career teachers and will discuss a range of possible demonstrations and how to ensure that these have maximum impact on student learning.  You will understand the principles of good demonstrations and how to apply these to all disciplines and phases.
