Event description

Description

Use dialogue to foster a deeper understanding of science and its place in society, increasing pupils’ engagement with science. This workshop will explore the role of enquiry based approaches in supporting all students including those who will not necessarily go on to have a career in science, to engage with science as citizens. Teachers will investigate ways to facilitate discussions with students about complex issues in science. The activities are designed to promote enquiry in the classroom and develop students’ critical thinking and reflection skills.

Teachers will gain practical experience of these dialogue activities and explore new resources that can be used with this approach whilst covering curriculum content. There will be time to share ideas with other teachers and education practitioners from the University of Bristol. The workshop is primarily aimed at secondary science teachers but all are welcome.

From 4-5pm attendees will get the chance to explore the newly rebranded We The Curious and interact with the exhibits for free prior to the session. Refreshemnets will be provided.

Ellie Hart (Centre for Science and Philosophy) and Ellie Cripps (Public Engagement) will be leading the workshop. Both are based at the University of Bristol and have led several science and philosophy projects involving local schools.

We have developed a complimentary workshop ‘Performance in the Science Classroom’ which will take place on the 8th November at the Watershed, although it is not essential that you attend both. This workshop has been created as part of the Horizon 2020 funded PERFORM project.
