Course Description

This practical one-day conference will provide an overview of the work of the CEYS project.  Participants will have opportunities to engage in practical workshops to illustrate creative inquiry-based approaches to science learning and teaching. During the workshops teachers involved in the project will present curriculum materials they have developed in their classrooms and share what they have gained through action research in partnership with teachers and teacher educators. Further information will be given about project resources to support professional development, either as an individual, or as part of programmes of initial and continuing teacher education.

The course will enable participants to:

  • Examine opportunities for creativity in science teaching and learning
  • Consider strategies that support the development of children’s creativity in science
  • Build on children’s capacities as young scientists and creative learners

Reflect on opportunities and challenges in implementing creative, inquiry based approaches in their own settings.
