Event category: Modules

£ 50 - If booked after 30th November 2020
7 December, 2020 | 15:45 - 16:20
Evidence base: The programme will draw upon the latest research evidence; it will primarily be built upon the work of the Education Endowment Foundation – their Secondary Science Guidance Report and Remote Learning: Rapid Evidence Assessment.
When and how? There will be a short (remote) programme launch for curriculum leaders or their representatives on Monday 7th December 3.45 – 4.20pm, this will contain an overview of the programme and guidance on how to use the training materials with your wider team. It will also provide an opportunity for networking and to meet other teachers and science leaders from across the region.
To ensure this programme fits into the ‘new normal’ in schools, this will be followed by the release of a sequence of short training videos and reading resources to use in your own time with your own departments or to build into your own classroom practice.
On 10th December 2020, the training resources for Remote Learning and Curriculum will be available.
By 15th January 2021, the training resources for Assessment and Practical Work will also be added.
We will also be offering a remote, live follow-up session on the week beginning 22nd February to share good practice and to think about next steps.
Cost? £40 per school for up to 3 people to attend the live events and for full access to the training materials and resources for 3 months
Training resources overview:
Remote Learning: strategies for good practice when teaching remotely. From juggling having some students in the classroom and some at home without double the planning, to how we ensure that learning at home is as effective as possible.
Curriculum: how to prioritise what to teach when the content is so big, and time reduced, focussing on preconceptions and misconceptions, and threshold concepts.
Assessment: using assessment to inform teaching by establishing gaps in learning and misunderstanding. Strategies for assessment for learning in a socially distanced classroom/remotely.
Practical work: How to teach the practical component effectively when not in a lab/how to do it in a Covid-secure way. Alternatives to practical/demos and what the research says about how to do it most effectively.
