UWA Plus Micro-credentials

Einsteinian Science for School Teachers

3 UWA PD Credit Points

Einstein-First has created a UWA micro-credential unit for primary and secondary school teachers (PHYSM401 & PHYSM402 respectively). Micro-credentials are short courses that can be undertaken by anyone, to develop the desired skills, knowledge and experience in a given subject.

These micro-credential units, created and run by the Einstein-First team, is designed for primary and secondary school teachers and educators who want to build their knowledge of a modernised school curriculum that matches the modern science students see in their everyday lives.

Both courses are aimed at those without a science degree, and presents the underlying concepts of modern science. These concepts are presented through simple, fun activities that use toys and models. Through these activities you will discover that modern Einsteinian concepts of space and time, gravity, energy and light are easy to understand and are easily taught to both primary and secondary students.

At the end of the course you will be able to talk with your students about science topics that fascinate many of them, like black holes and quantum computers and important topics like climate change. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are giving students the best possible preparation for life in the modern world of science and technology.
