Why Don’t you Enjoy HEC? I14
Do you know "Kasetsu", Hypothesis-Experiment Class?
In this session, we will present a concrete method and theory on how HEC enables students to engage in learning science concepts with unique teaching materials indispensable to HEC. The majority of students exposed to HEC evaluate the class as FUN!  Regardless of when, where, and by whom it is carried out.
   Attractive Classbooks in various fields (starting with mechanics and physics) have been developed and utilized in all grades from primary education to university liberal arts education.
   Please come and see what HEC is through one of the typical Classbooks "Objects and their Weight". This Classbook is usually carried out in classes of 8-14 years-old. We will also show some of the real class records at primary schools in Japan.

Teaching Students with SEND T30
*** Moved to Maths 104 ***

Led by the ASE 11-19 Committee. This session will empower teachers of students with SEN by providing a range of teaching ideas and strategies to use in the classroom.

Until recently Rob worked as a deputy head in a small special school academy in Nottinghamshire where he taught science to GCSE level.  Rob is now a freelance education & science teaching consultant.  Rob is also a chartered science teacher and a member of the ASE's 11-19 committee.
Rob's workshop will serve as an introduction to the most common specific learning difficulties encountered in the secondary classroom.  Rob will share strategies that can be used to bring about learning, engagement and student retention that have been tried and tested in his own lessons in over 20 years of working with SEN students.

This workshop is aimed at teachers of KS3 & 4.

Unconscious Bias and Its Effect in the Classroom T35
For more than 30 years, uptake of A-level physics among girls has remained at around 20%. Previous research from the IOP has shown that this 20% comes from certain schools and that schools that achieve a good gender balance in physics achieve a good gender balance in other subjects, suggesting that the problem isn’t with girls or physics - whole school environment makes a difference. 
The latest project from the IOP has trialled interventions that looked at how bias and stereotyping could be addressed in a school environment as well how lower confidence of girls could be addressed. The project shows promising results with the number of girls taking A level physics in targeted schools trebling. This workshop looks at what unconscious bias is, how it affects the classroom and what teachers can do about it.

Professional Learning without Limits S12
We know that excellent teaching transforms the lives of all students, from those in early years to adult learners. At the Chartered College of Teaching, we believe the way to achieve excellent teaching and leadership is by supporting, developing and giving a voice to teachers, enabling them to be the very best they can be.

The education landscape is challenging. Everything from curricular and assessment reform and budget constraints and workload concerns, to feelings of disempowerment and disillusion, can hamper what happens in the classroom. We want to change that. This is a once-in-a-generation chance for the teaching profession. It is only through developing and showcasing teachers’ expertise that we will restore pride, autonomy and a grassroots voice that will be impossible to ignore.

SEEd and the Sustainable Schools Alliance have recently launched a new Sustainable Schools Doorway on Nature & Biodiversity.
This practical session will provide and enable teachers to trial a framework for using this Doorway; linking it to their current projects and unlocking the potential for ‘learning for sustainability’ in their schools.

The Sustainable Schools Framework was built on the principle of care – of oneself, of others and of the environment. The Doorways into the framework are approached through Campus, Curriculum or Community approaches. There 8 original doorways in the framework are: Food and Drink; Energy and Water; Travel and Traffic; Purchasing and Waste; Buildings and Grounds; Inclusion and Participation; Local Well-being; and Global Dimension. These Doorways are now being updated to enable practical curriculum links and reflect the Sustainable Development Goals - or Global Goals.

This session will introduce Best Evidence Science Teaching (BEST) - a new collection of free, open-access, research-informed resources for effective engagement, teaching and formative assessment, initially focussed on science at ages 11-14. The resources are being developed by the University of York Science Education Group and the Salters’ Institute. We are running classroom trials with teachers to help develop the resources and add to the research evidence base.

Best Evidence Science Teaching draws upon the best available research evidence to provide resources for:
  • Effective teaching of difficult ideas
  • Purposeful practical work
  • Targeted formative assessment
  • Increased student engagement

Come along to explore sample resources and to find out about collaborating with researchers from the University of York in our classroom trials.
