A two-day Revolution Education (RevEd) workshop leading you through the fundamental concepts of physics and how to teach them in an engaging and effective way. This is suitable for middle and secondary school teachers as well as interested primary school teachers with a responsibility for science. There is strong evidence that subject-specific CPD is particularly advantageous
What is it?
An intensive, but fun, two-day course. Delivered by experts in supporting physics education worldwide in a low stress, but high challenge environment.
Physics is a wonderful, but potentially tricky subject to teach and is rife with misconceptions. If the fundamentals are missed then none of it makes much sense: What exactly do we mean by; Forces, energy, electrical current, etc? These workshops are to ensure your students don’t find physics confusing and boring. We will teach you Award Winning, Research-Based Strategies for improving the engagement of girls in physics. How to make the maths less intimidating and more intuitive and how to use non-specialist equipment to enhance understanding.
These RevEd Physics Workshops will provide you with digital materials and help you:
• improve your confidence in teaching physics
• deepen your understanding of the subject
• meet and share best practice with other science teachers and become part of a supportive network.
• make physics more engaging for your students and more enjoyable for you
Who is it for?
All non-specialist teachers of physics at all levels (primary teachers welcome)and those wanting a refresher course. We start with the absolute fundamentals and build up. We will reach a higher level than that required to be delivered at primary level, but the greater the level of your understanding, the better you will be at teaching physics.
