About

This Teaching Practical Science - Progress Student Learning Through Hands-On Science ExpertTrack at FutureLearn is aimed at secondary school science teachers who are looking to improve learning and engagement among students aged 14-16 through practical science.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The three featured courses explore strategies and approaches for incorporating practical work into science lessons. 

By looking at context, progression, assessment, and learning outcomes, those involved in teaching science will develop approaches to improve engagement and encourage learning. 

The three courses build up teaching practice by using examples from biology, physics, and chemistry.

The question of how to engage students in science subjects goes wider than just schools. It is a matter of record that we are facing a global STEM skills gap. Developing practical and scientific skills with students throughout school will be key to addressing this skills gap in the near future.
