    In this session we join teachers from a range of schools as they share their experiences, successes and challenges designing and implementing their innovative science programmes.

    So great to hear about what teachers are doing in their classrooms

    Teacher

    In this webinar we aim to deepen your understanding of why and how teachers are making changes to their programmes in order to develop students’ scientific capabilities and support scientific literacy.

    You will also gain insight into the impact of these approaches and how to access support for incorporating these ideas into your own programme.

    Lots of easy to adapt ideas I can use.

    We encourage you to join our discussion about science capabilities and register in our online forum on Slack. In this forum we share and discuss ideas, and share resources.

    Nature of science

    The science capabilities have been described as what the Nature of Science strand looks like in action. Learn more about the Nature of science in our topic and delve deeper in our Teacher PLD section.

    In this recorded webinar, resources from the Science Learning Hub are highlighted to demonstrate how they might help develop students’ science capabilities as part of a wider science inquiry. In particular, the session offers questions that teachers might ask students to get them thinking and responding along the lines of the following capabilities: gather and interpret data, use evidence, critique evidence, interpret representations and engage with science.
