Overview Overview
 

In this module, students will engage in hands-on, active experiments and design projects that aim to equip them with the skills needed to teach science using constructivist methodologies.

With a focus on the individual strands of the science curriculum as well as on a holistic approach to teaching STEM and 21st century skills, students will gain an understanding of how best to structure lessons, thematic projects and long term plans. This elective aims to give students practical tips and ideas that can be readily transferred to the classroom.

The assignment that accompanies this elective is to plan, teach and reflect upon a science lesson taught to a small group of children.

Upon completion of this module, students can expect to have a bank of ideas upon which to draw, a structure upon which they can base their plans and an understanding of how science, used alongside technology, engineering and maths, can be used as the basis for teaching the essential 21st century skills of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication.
