Chemistry for our future resources - Strands 2, 3 and 4
Strands 2, 3 and 4 concentrated on the developments to improve student support and teaching and learning in undergraduate chemistry courses.
- Strand 2 - Teacher Fellowship Scheme
Teacher Fellowship saw the secondment of chemistry teachers into university chemistry departments for a year to undertake projects aimed at easing the school-to-university transition.
- Strand 3 - Curriculum Development
Strand 3 covered a range of projects including development and evaluation context- and problem-based learning, school-to-university transition projects and a study on the Bologna process.
- Strand 4 - Widening Access to University Laboratories
University of Bristol and University of Sheffield trialled two distinctive approaches to schools' use of university laboratory facilities with the aim to enhance pupils' experience of practical chemistry.
