Workshops for teachers
Delivering Sustainability Across the Curriculum’ teacher workshops and training courses are designed to encourage and aid teachers in bringing climate change and sustainability issues into the classroom. Workshops combine a choice of talks, practical activities and interactive demonstrations in order to explore ways of linking sustainability across science, geography, environmental science and citizenship.
Due to the recent government-led changes in school science curricula and initiatives aimed at teaching subjects such as climate change across discipline boundaries there is a real need to assist teachers in their development of new areas of skills and knowledge. The Science for Sustainability teacher training workshop activities directly address these changes to the curricula and help teachers through providing knowledge updates in a range of related areas and demonstrating methods of tackling these issues in the curricula through a range of interactive activities suitable for use in the classroom.
The science for Sustainability team has experience of providing curriculum-targeted teacher training workshops for teachers from a range of discipline backgrounds from Geography through to the Sciences and has developed a range of innovative and well-targeted resources and workshop activities aimed at aiding teachers and addressing the challenges imposed by the changes to the schools curriculum.
All teacher training workshops are half-day (2.5 hours) and comprise of a choice of Talks and Activities, tailored to the audience and any specific requirements. One workshop can comprise of between 2-4 of the options as listed below (dependent on the activity).
