Earth Science Education Unit workshops have been devised for teachers and trainee teachers. They are intended to provide participants with a range of activities that can be used in the classroom, whilst helping them to develop the skills for using the activities in an engaging and motivating way that will enthuse and educate their pupils, whilst developing their critical thinking skills. The workshops should also develop the background Earth science knowledge and understanding of the teachers involved.
The workshop format may be transposed directly into a classroom, but often this is not appropriate. Similarly, individual activities, and the worksheets on which these are based, may be transferable directly into a classroom situation, but will often require modification for the classes and situations in which they are used, during which suitable risk assessments are undertaken.
This course does not have any pre-booked dates available. Please contact the provider directly to arrange this training.
