Welsh Physics Teachers Conference Brecon 2021
The Institute of Physics Welsh Physics Teachers Conference Brecon 2021 which will have a blended approach. A fabulous free week of presentations and workshop for teachers, technicians and PGCE students with opportunities to network with colleagues.
Since its introduction in 2010, Scotland’s ‘Curriculum for Excellence’, while successful in some areas, has also been dogged by problems, unintended consequences, and a series of changes to the National Qualification courses such as Higher and Advanced Higher Physics – resulting in significant workload for teachers. The pandemic brought further tensions and highlighted structural problems, particularly with assessment. Following sustained pressure from professional bodies and opposition parties, the Scottish Government commissioned the OECD to conduct an independent review of the Scottish school curriculum. Its report was published in June 2021 and all 12 of its recommendations were immediately accepted by the Scottish Government. These include the replacement of the Scottish Qualifications Authority and the break up of Education Scotland, the national support and inspection agency, as well as many other changes. This
session will provide some background and will highlight lessons learned from the implementation of what many see as a forerunner of a Curriculum for Wales.
Suitable for all.
We will offer a varied programme of workshops, shows and presentations between 1.30pm pm and 8pm each evening Monday- Friday. For more details and a full e-programme please visit https://www.talkphysics.org/groups/talking-physics/forum/topic/welsh-physics-teachers-conference-brecon-2021/
