Pete Sorensen

University of Nottingham
I have been working in education for about 38 years now, the first half mainly as a secondary school science teacher and manager and the second as a lecturer in higher education institutions. I am currently a Lecturer in Education at the University of Nottingham, with key responsibilities as MA Education Course Leader and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) Regional Coordinator for South America.
I have been involved in science teacher education throughout my career, as well as being involved in many curriculum initiatives at school and university level. My research has been very closely linked to my teaching throughout and has included: Initial Teacher Education (routes into teaching; paired placements in the school practicum; mentoring; use of video); use of the Internet in science education; teaching and learning about the Nature of Science.
My focus at this conference is on Inquiry Based Learning and stems from my recent involvement in one of the large scale European FP7 projects, Maths and Science for Life (Mascil). Mascil is one of many projects concerned with aspects of inquiry based learning and has a particular focus on links to the world of work. I will be drawing on the research we did linked to the project, which had as its specific aim that of supporting the professional development of science teachers' use of inquiry based approaches across all phases of compulsory education.
