Description

The programme develops trainees’ school experiences in order to explore some of the wider concers of Biology and Science teachers today, and provides opportunities to broaden professional experiences. There are sessions that are particularly important for Biology teachers: teaching ethics, teaching evolution and handling controversial issues such as intelligent design and teaching reproduction.

An effective Biology teacher must also develop his/her pedagogical subject knowledge specifically related to teaching Biology; for example, the effective use of practical work in Biology, the teaching and learning of key Biology ideas, and the teaching and learning of Biology beyond the classroom. Sessions are provided that focus on these areas for Biologists as well as other sessions in the other two Sciences. Subject knowledge is provided via a peer teaching programme.
