Overcome the challenges of teaching science remotely to your secondary students

Due to COVID-19, secondary school students around the world are learning remotely and online. Many teachers are having to adjust their teaching.

This introductory course will help you to develop new online and offline teaching strategies for supporting learning at home and at a distance.

You’ll consider the issues of student engagement, time management, assessment and feedback, and the role of parents, as well as how to keep up with practical science activities.

You’ll draw upon the resources you already have, use a variety of asynchronous teaching and learning tools, and collaborate with colleagues in designing teaching sequences.

This is a professional development course designed for teachers of science to students aged 11-19 years who are providing support for students to learn at home.

Heads of science departments may also find this course useful for devising their approach to home teaching.
