Quantum Physics Course March 4th, 2016 – Satrosphere Science Centre, Aberdeen

Glasgow University is recognised as a world leader in quantum technology. In this course, researchers from QuantIC, the quantum enhanced imaging hub, based  at the university’s physics department will guide teachers through some of the new H and AH physics content, setting it in the context of their own work. There will be practical sessions too, giving delegates the chance to participate in activities to support the teaching of quantum physics in the classroom. Resources will be provided to take back to school, including a Photonics Explorer optics kit.

Only 20 places are available.  The course costs £180. Local Authority schools and FE colleges will be entitled to receive a Cutting Edge Science Award of £180 for each delegate in attendance. The Cutting Edge Science Award is funded by Research Councils UK (RCUK)  administered by the National Science Learning Network.

A free online course facilitated by Future Learn and led by Dylan Wiliam and Christine Harrison, to help STEM teachers get to grips with Assessment for Learning.

Assessment for Learning is a term that’s widely used in education, but applied in ways that are variable in their effectiveness. This free online course – designed for STEM teachers in primary and secondary schools, and sixth form and further education (FE) colleges – will help you understand and use it more effectively.This course is designed for English-speaking teachers of STEM subjects in primary and secondary schools, and sixth form and FE colleges. It’s also relevant to trainee teachers; teacher trainers; those thinking about a career in STEM teaching; and developers of STEM-related course materials.

It is a CPD course for people who, in the main, have a degree level qualification, or who are in the process of obtaining one.
