UWA Plus Micro-credentials
Einsteinian Science for School Teachers
3 UWA PD Credit Points
The next class begins 25 July 2022 – Online
Einstein-First has created a UWA micro-credential unit for primary and secondary school teachers (PHYSM401 & PHYSM402 respectively). Micro-credentials are short courses that anyone can undertake to develop the desired skills, knowledge, and experience in a given subject.
These micro-credential units, created and run by the Einstein-First team, are 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 designed for both those with or without a specialised 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 issues like climate change. You will be satisfied with knowing that you are giving students the best possible preparation for life in the modern world of science and technology.
The upcoming courses will consist of online demonstrations, tutorials and training videos. The course will culminate in an in-person, multi-day workshop hosted in the Einstein-First office space at UWA.
