This event will focus on the teaching of General Theory of Relativity part of the Astrophysics topic in AH Physics and will build on the first part of this event which took place on Wednesday, 9th Dec 2020. This second part will focus on teaching strategies and will involve some hands-on class activities for participants to do and discuss during the online event. Instructions about templates to print out and simple resources such as scissors and tape will be given during this first event and are available on the TalkPhysics IOP Scotland Online CLPL thread for that event https://www.talkphysics.org/groups/iop-scotland-online-clpl/forum/topic/iop-scotland-clpl-ah-physics-gr-curved-spacetime-part-1-9th-dec-2020/. General Relativity is recognised as one of the most complex covered in school level physics and the event will cover the key knowledge required by pupils and strategies to make this accessible to them. There will be opportunities to ask questions, have open discuss and for more one-to-one support.
Registration for the event will close at lunchtime on the day of the event. Log-in details will be emailed to registered delegates on the day of the event. Please check junk mail folders if you have not received log-in details before the event. Contact [email protected] if you have a problem.
This is the fifth in a series of events designed to support the needs of teachers of AH Physics in Scotland. Links to resources and recordings of the previous events in this series can be found in the IOP Scotland Online CLPL Group on TalkPhysics.
