Join Achievement for All and the Brilliant Club at the launch event for new modules and learning resources for KS3 teachers in London on 2 July.
Through the University Learning in Schools (ULiS) project, Achievement for All and the Brilliant Club have developed modules and resources in Maths, History, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Psychology, Economics, English Literature and RE. The aim is to develop teachers – and as a result, pupils – subject knowledge. The modules are:
- English – Stories of the Great North Road: Rogues, Riders and Runaways
- Chemistry – The Engineer’s Guide to Cleaning an Oil Company’s Mess
- Economics – Do I Need an i-Phone?
- Mathematics – 3D geometry: the shape of the everyday world
- Biology – What happens in my brain during the day?
- Physics – Exoplanets: Discovering and Characterising Planets Orbiting Other Stars
- History – The First World War: Trauma and Memory
- Computer science – How programming and the creation of algorithms can be used to solve problems
- Psychology – Myth busting – the brain
- RE – Buddhists and the world.
Researchers from Queen Mary’s, Kings College London, Oxford, UCL, Cambridge, Cranfield and the Open University have worked with teachers from Lampton, St Thomas More, Phoenix High School, Brentside High School, Cardinal Pole, Parliament Hill School, and The Coopers’ Company and Coborn School to develop these modules.
Lisa Knowles, Project Manager for University Learning in Schools said: “Research shows that teachers’ subject knowledge is a key driver in improving student outcomes. Despite this, teachers in England are lagging behind their international counterparts in undertaking CPD in subject knowledge. Our University Learning in Schools (ULiS) project aims to buck this trend, putting the spotlight firmly on teachers’ subject knowledge.”
All delegates will receive all resources on a USB stick.
