Learn how to maximise learning through practical science in the classroom
On this course, you’ll learn strategies for managing the practical classroom in science.
From managing behaviour and fostering positive attitudes to implementing departmental processes and working with colleagues, you’ll explore all aspects of practical activities in the school or college laboratory.
You’ll consider classroom layouts as well as the use of practical work to maximise learning.
You’ll also discover how to create the right climate for collaborative learning and how to simplify more complex practical work using micro-scale setups or integrated instructions.
This online professional development course is designed for teachers of science subjects to students aged 11-19 years.
This may include newly qualified, recently qualified and experienced teachers of science who don’t have a science background.
Teaching assistants and technicians may also find this course useful to consider the wider context in which practical science is taught.
