Event description

Description


The Ri Masterclass programme opens young people’s eyes to the diversity of mathematics, engineering and computer science. All over the UK, keen young people who have been nominated by their teachers attend series of workshops to explore areas of these subjects outside their school experience. The programme aims to allow students to gain a deeper understanding of the wonders and applications of these far-reaching subjects and to continue their interest and engagement into later life.

Secondary Masterclasses in Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science run in and around Newcastle each year, and we hope that Primary Mathematics Masterclasses will be launching in the area soon. All series would welcome new workshop leaders.

This training day, for local STEM professionals and educators and delivered by the Royal Institution's Masterclasses team, aims to give an overview of some of the essential skills needed for developing and delivering an Ri Masterclass based on your own favourite topic.

If you wish to discuss getting involved in a local Masterclass series before the date of this training, would like to visit one of the saturday morning workshops or want to volunteer as a helper, please get in touch: masterclasses@ri.ac.uk. You can also see here for details of more training and taster events across the UK.

Masterclass Speaker Training Day:

Session 1 will focus on presentation, communication and classroom management skills. You will take part in activities to help develop your skills in these areas and hear top tips shared by existing presenters.

Session 2 will focus on the development of your workshop. You will need an initial idea to bring to this session. This idea does not need to be fully formed, but you should have thought about a topic you would like to cover and considered some potential activities that the students may be able to take part in during the Masterclass workshop. You will recieve guidance on turning this idea into a working Masterclass as well as time to discuss and share ideas with your peers and Masterclass team representatives. Be prepared to give input and feedback into other speakers ideas as well as receiving feedback on your own.

Session 3 will focus on skills for inclusive learning, in particular looking at maintaining equality and recognising unconscious bias. You will learn about inclusive techniques to apply in your Masterclass, focusing on removing some of the barriers which can prevent people from effectively engaging.

If you have any questions about the training day please get in touch: masterclasses@ri.ac.uk.
