Subject-specific courses have been found to be the most effective in developing teachers. This is a great opportunity for physics teachers and those preparing to teach it to learn new skills, network and share ideas at Aiglon College in Switzerland. Supported by the SGIS (Swiss Group of International Schools) but open to all schools.
Physics is a potentially difficult subject to teach and this conference will focus on how we can be more effective and efficient. We will be considering common issues like:
- How to attract more girls to do physics at IB level (Based on award-winning research done by the Institute of Physics)
- How to improve students problem-solving abilities and maths skills.
- Approaches to introducing particle physics to your classroom – By the CERN Education Team.
- How technology can transform the teaching of physics by giving an insight into student misconceptions and using smartphones as dataloggers
- Increasing engagement and learning with great ideas and practicals
- How to build a Personal Learning Network to share resources, ideas and to be part of a supportive community.
There will be plenty of time to share ideas and network.
