Genomics: Using a Researcher in the Classroom

This guide, from triple science support, has been produced to provide advice and guidance for teachers wishing to engage with a researcher from a local university and to support the teaching of genomics with enhancement and enrichment opportunities. The guide offers background information and practical suggestions to support classroom practice when teaching about genomics and gives suggestions for securing progression and follow up activities. Before you start to plan your activity, it is helpful to consider the impact you want it to have on teachers, students or the school. To help you to measure the impact of your enrichment and enhancement activities, the guide makes some suggestions for outcomes and what evidence you might see that it has had the impact you may have planned for.

This is one of a suite of guides which provide a full range of suggestions for effective enhancement and enrichment activities which can be incorporated into the scheme of work, and these can be found on the triple science support enhancement and enrichment webpage. The guides include: FieldworkSTEM AmbassadorsChemistry at WorkFaraday ChallengesAstrobiology, Crest Awards, and Careers.
