Teaching physics at Level 3
Facilitated by: Mr Francis Bryden, HoD Physics, St Cuthbert's College
Teaching Level 3 Physics:
This is a follow up workshop of last years 2016 course, where we concentrated on teaching Waves and Mechanics.
This year we will focus on Level 3 Electricity with some time spent on Modern Physics and 3.1 Investigations.
Many of us struggle with the demonstrations needed to convey the concepts in electricity.
This course will look at:
- a wide variety of different experiments that can be done as demonstrations or group activities.
- using simple equipment that everyone can access, but will also look at using a datalogger in a wide variety of applications.
- on the concepts that students struggle with and practical ways of getting ideas across.
A range of paper and electronic resources will be provided.
The emphasis is on simple, practical strategies to improve students' learning.
(The workshop is limited to 24 places)
Date: Tuesday, 7 November.
Venue: St Cuthbert's College, 122 Market Road, Epsom, Auckland
Cost: $295 (GST Incl) per person, includes morning tea and lunch
