Event Details

Feed the Future – delivering provenance and sustainability in your classroom

Presenter: Suzanne Gray

This is a new course for 2016 / 2017 brings to life teaching food journeys from field to fork.  As a vital new part of the GCSE and KS3 programme of study this course is invaluable to all secondary food teachers who would like to develop their teaching skills in areas that may be controversial, create debate and emotional responses to food issues. As teachers and role models – how can we produce less packaging waste; reduce our planets’ gas emissions and plan for a future that will feed the ever-expanding population with good nutritious food?

It explores:

  • Why we need food security
  • How we will feed the future population and global food production issues.
  • The impact of climate change and deforestation
  • Sustainability and food waste – locally, and globally

 

The day will consist of a combination of information, discussion, practical tasks and hands on learning.  Part of the day will also be spent in looking at new and innovative ideas for producing our food in a more ecologically sound way e.g. hydroponics.

 

Each teacher will receive access to a Digital course folder, which provides copies to all of the resources used on the day, example activities and resource lists.  It also includes games; learning aids and links to online resources that you can access for their classroom use.

About the Food Teachers Centre 

FOOD TEACHER CENTRE is a UK based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.

The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for.

The Food Teachers Centre is a place of

  • creative and innovative ideas and action

  • practical solutions

  • learning and sharing

To join the closed group, simply visit www.facebook.com/groups/foodteachers
