We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a Cambridge global learner seminar in science on Sunday 22 April in Doha, Qatar from 09.30 - 16.30. The seminar is free to attend and will include a mix of educational theory and practical methodology. You will learn how to make science fun and how to truly engage your students in how science works.
Dr Mark Winterbottom, a leading science specialist at the University of Cambridge's Faculty of Education, will run the seminar and explore with principals, heads of department and science teachers how to implement learner-centred techniques in science lessons.
In November 2011 we hosted a similar seminar for science in Egypt which was a huge success. Delegates enjoyed the interactive format and the opportunity to meet fellow Cambridge science teachers.
This seminar will look at how learners can be helped to explore science in depth and in context, whilst still covering the required curriculum.Discussions will consider alternatives to accelerating students through the curriculum and highlight a variety of approaches to challenge, focus and extend students' learning, including using new technologies.
Dr Mark Winterbottom is a lecturer in science education at the University of Cambridge. He trains secondary science teachers and teaches on the Masters in Education. He has authored a number of textbooks and books for teachers. Some of Mark’s recent work has focused on using ‘assessment for learning’ strategies in science lessons and on using new technologies to support children’s learning in science.
