Planning Physics across the Curriculum: Waves and sensory learning

This session will include as speakers:
James de Winter, Department of Education, University of Cambridge
Dr Lawrence Cattermole, IOP Wales
Gary Williams, Editor-in-chief Physics Education

Teaching about waves, such as light and sound, can be framed as an exploration of the senses and hence of the environment around us. In this workshop we will discuss ideas that could be useful when planning the teaching of waves as a progression throughout the new curriculum. Looking at specific examples and bringing in ideas from research, we hope to help shed light on how teaching and learning about waves can be relevant, inclusive and rigorous.

Important ideas such as biodiversity and wellbeing can be highlighted using waves as a medium, so please join us for the short presentations and discussion that follows.
