National Chemistry Teachers and Educators Conference 2016
Secondary and Further Education GroupChemistry Teachers and Educators Conference 201612 July 2016 09:30-16:00, Sheffield Register today! http://onlineshop.shef.ac.uk/ Following the success of their first conference at Sheffield University in 2015, the Secondary and Further Education Group has put together an exciting programme for this year’s conference. The aim is to attract a wide range of chemistry teachers and those involved in chemistry education for the age group 11-19+, whether in schools, colleges or the workplace. This year’s programme will again focus on current topics of interest including educational techniques, apprenticeships and the changes to practical work assessment in A level chemistry. The conference is open to all chemistry teachers in secondary and further education, as well as work-based trainers and others with an interest in the teaching of chemistry. The day will follow the same format as previously with short talks in the morning session, followed by afternoon workshops. These were particularly successful last year and gave teachers plenty of opportunities to network and learn new ideas and methods of teaching familiar subjects as well as consider other routes to employment via apprenticeships.Speakers This year’s speakers include: Professor Sir John Holman, who will deliver the keynote address Dr Simon Rees from the RSC Educational Techniques Group Lucy Rimmington, Ofqual Charlotte Carr, Higher Apprentice Pfizer Professor Tony Ryan, who will deliver the final address WorkshopsDelegates will have the opportunity to attend two of six workshops which include: Microscale techniques in chemistry. Practical Demonstrations to enhance teaching. How have teachers managed the changes to practical work assessment in A level chemistry this year? Sharing best practice one year in. Edible experiments - a taste of chemistry Educational techniques. Apprenticeships - Right student + inspiring employer = golden opportunity . If interested further details can be found on the website.The final date for booking is the 8th of July.
Re: coordination comound
Hi Shilpa How are you? I trust all is well with you. Have you looked at the Learn Chemistry website? http://www.rsc.org/learn-chemistry Put coordination into the search box at the top and a number of resources will come up. I particularly like the one under the headng 'AfL: Transition metal complexes' which has some really good group work and a simple experiment. The one under the title 'Cobalt complexes' is actually an exercise in creative problem solving. The one under the title 'Chemistry Vignette: Transition metal' contains a series of short video clips BUT these may be too advanced for 16 year old students. Good to hear from you David Everett
