Need to explore your potential?

Want to be switched on to teaching electric circuits? Aiming to be a shining example of a model teacher?

This day of physics teaching development is aimed at those teaching 11-14 electric circuits and looking to take things further, either getting ready for the next step up or digging down to improve your understanding. Ideal for those without a specialist background in physics, and NQTs, most teachers of physics will discover something useful to take away.

Take part in a day of discussion and explanation with the Institute of Physics own Teacher Network Coordinators. These very experienced teachers will be able to answer all of your questions on electric circuits and share their own expertise.

Structure of the day:

There will be some light reading and a some questions to try before the day. These will be e-mailed out in advance.

0930: Tea and biscuits and registration

1000: Why the model we use in school is important (1/2 hr)
1030: Bring and share – bring your best tip or bit of kit or your biggest problem (1/2 hr)
1100: Models of electric circuits – exploring the variety of those available (1hr)

1200: Lunch – a chance to discuss with peers (1hr)

1300: Make and take – make a square circuit model to take back and use in the lab. (2hr)
1500: Mystery box bingo (1/2 hr) This is a black box activity – a fun but useful approach to components.
1530: Questions and evaluations (1/2 hr)

1600: Finish (at the latest)

You’ll get to take away your model and a goody bag of resources.

Fee: The day is free to you, costs are covered by the Institute of Physics
