Tuesday 11 May

4pm

Using online simulations to support post-16 analytical practical work

(Suitable for post-16 chemistry teachers and technicians supporting these topics)

We will look at various analytical online simulations with live demonstrations and time for you to explore the resources yourself. In small groups you will then have the opportunity to discuss with your peers how you would use in them in the classroom. We will also introduce and discuss how educational research ideas, such as Johnstone’s triangle, can be used with these simulations to have a greater impact on your students learning.

Thursday 13 May

4pm

Blended learning: a ‘how to’ guide

(Suitable for anyone teaching or supporting secondary science)

Join us for a live and interactive session on how to use blended learning in secondary education. This session will be delivered by Robert Campbell (lecturer in primary and secondary science at St Mary’s University) and Katie Nuttall (RSC education coordinator).

Tuesday 18 May

4pm

Organic chemistry pre-16 

(Suitable for anyone teaching or supporting secondary science)

This interactive session will explore our collection of organic chemistry pre-16 teaching resources. We will share a selection of worksheets, videos and practical resources that can be used for teaching in the classroom or remotely. There will be time to explore resources in smaller groups (breakout rooms) followed by discussion on how best to use these to improve learning outcomes.

Thursday 20 May

4 pm

Effective pedagogy in the classroom

(Suitable for anyone teaching or supporting secondary science)

We will introduce a range of different teaching and learning tools that can be used in the classroom for peer and self assessment as well as group working. This will be coupled with an opportunity to try out some ready-to-use classroom resources from the RSC assessment for learning series.

Tuesday 25 May

4pm

How to make the most of our practical videos

(Suitable for anyone teaching or supporting secondary science)

Join us for a live and interactive session on our new practical videos and associated support. We will look at recent articles on the use of practical videos and some suggestions on the ways to include them in your teaching. There will be time for you to explore the resources and for discussion. 

Thursday 27 May

4pm

 

Polymers and plastics: the chemistry & the impact

(Suitable for pre-16 chemistry teachers and technicians supporting these topics)

Programmes like Blue Planet II have made us consider our own personal use of plastics. This session explores the ways chemical scientists are working towards cleaner and greener materials and delves into some novel plastic recycling solutions to share with your students.
