Skip to 0 minutes and 5 seconds Designing a science curriculum that works well for students and staff is a challenge. Identifying what works well, and what could be improved is not always easy to do, given the wide range of different approaches taken to designing secondary science programmes. This course from the National STEM Learning Centre is designed to give you a starting point to evaluate your own current science curriculum and begin to identify where changes might be made to increase the effectiveness of your schemes of learning, as well as where things work well. We will look at different curriculum models and the advantages and disadvantages of a variety of approaches, as well as how the day-to-day support for teachers can be modelled to support effective learning for students.
Skip to 0 minutes and 47 seconds The important aspects of effective practical work and embedding appropriate mathematical skills for science within a curriculum will be explored and how progression can be mapped effectively. Through a series of videos, discussion and tasks, you will engage with other teachers, sharing their experiences of different ways of planning science schemes of learning, and be supported by the National STEM Learning Centre to enhance your curriculum and plan for future development.
