Contemporary Science CPD @ SSERC
Contemporary science topics fascinate students as they are perceived as exciting and controversial and help students to engage with cutting edge, real-world problems. Experience of such topics can change attitudes and affect future career choices.
As scientific developments and advancements progress so rapidly, it is important to give teachers the opportunity to remain excited and engaged with their subject. SSERC is delighted to have been invited by the National STEM Learning Centre (NSLC) and Research Councils UK (RCUK) to act as their agent in Scotland and provide a suite of courses for teachers. This programme is designed to deliver the latest knowledge, new contexts and practical activities to support teachers in delivering the curriculum in accessible, enjoyable and stimulating ways for all.
The programme of high quality has been developed in partnership with leading researchers working at the cutting edge of contemporary science. Courses are delivered by personnel from SSERC with support from the researchers themselves. The courses focus on recent advances in scientific research and will enable teachers to improve their knowledge and understanding of the fundamental science concepts underlying the research in contexts linked to the curriculum.
