This resource contains the first session of the Active Approaches to Level Three Applied Science, produced by the Science Learning Centres and the Nuffield Foundation. The session includes two activities: Gallery of quotes and Making sense of texts.
• Gallery of quotes - students are asked to read and respond to a set of quotes
• Making sense of text - an activity taken from the Learning Skills for Science (LSS) project in which students 'translate' and interpret a text about applied science into their own words using diagrams, charts or mind maps.
The presentation then discusses what makes a course 'applied' and why active learning is important.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
