A seminar run by the IOP professional practice group, for anyone supporting teachers of physics. The morning will focus on applying the science capital teaching approach to physics teacher CPD.

The science capital teaching approach suggests three pillars that underpin science teaching; personalising and localising, eliciting, valuing and linking and building the science capital dimensions.
Within CPD this means building a teacher’s physics capital and helping them make new connections with their physics subject knowledge The session will tailor this approach to our CPD sessions.
1. Personalising and localising
Situating examples within the immediate locality of the school. This can help us build a relationship with teachers. Exploring the school’s local community helps make training relevant to their students’ needs
2. Eliciting, valuing and linking
Linking to the science specialist’s own area of expertise.
3. Building the science capital dimensions

Please bring a recent CPD session outline, a school lesson plan and something you are planning for this term for us to discuss and tweak for next time.

Lunch will be served at 12.15 – please feel free to stay for lunch!
