Triple Science Case Study: Collaboration to Support Non-specialists
From the Triple Science Support Programme, this case study describes a network set up to support non-specialists teaching physics.
The case study includes some background information about the schools involved in Stockport, supported by the local authority, how they produced a guide for addressing both basic knowledge and misconceptions in electricity, and downloadable resources to help teachers to understand all aspects of forces.
Guidance identified as useful to others includes:
• finding adequate time set aside to meet,
• the need to feel comfortable enough to ask questions and share expertise,
• the importance of the network leader to agree actions collectively, and
• using a venue and time that allows members to focus on the project away from distractions.
This resource has been included in this collection for teachers’ use, however it may contain some information, particularly relating to Government policy, which is now out of date.
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.
