IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
This professional learning experience will focus on classroom ideas for engagement with the Earth and Space strand. Science education pedagogies, including the use of models and modelling, addressing misconceptions and dialogue as a tool to promote deep learning, will be considered.
Modelling a “Flipped Classroom “ approach, we hope to offer a unique learning experience. This will combine asynchronous and synchronous learning in the context of Learning Outcome E&S4:
Students should be able to develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe predictable phenomena observable on earth, including seasons, lunar phases and eclipses of the sun.
This professional learning experience will consist of two elements.
1. Asynchronous Engagement: On close of registration, you will be sent, by post, an activity pack and booklet. You will be invited to engage with the pack and to reflect on your learning over a two-week period. By “asynchronous” we mean that you engage with the resources at a time that suits you.
2. Synchronous Engagement: The second part of this CPD will consist of an online workshop during the week of November 23rd. As part of this online learning event, you will be invited to discuss the pedagogical approaches offered by the packs, as you engage with other teachers to share your reflections and learning from your engagement with the packs. We will also explore your experience of this “Flipped CPD” approach. The online event is scheduled for 1hour and 15minutes. Several time options during the week of November 23rd will be offered after registration. We hope that this hybrid approach to e-learning will ensure that the time spent together online is spent in discussion and sense making.
Please note that some of the activities were first explored as part of the ESERO Ireland Earth and Space Conference in CIT in September 2019. However the resources have been further developed for this experience.
