Overview

In all university-based sessions student teachers are expected to be active participants.

Coursework is practically oriented and closely related to teaching and learning. The University teaching team has extensive science teaching experience across the Science curriculum. The Science course at Aberystwyth University was inspected by ESTYN in January 2007 and was awarded a Grade 1 (Outstanding).

Early in the course student teachers are introduced to a range of schemes and strategies currently in use in secondary Science teaching. You look at how children learn and develop. You will consider factors to be taken into account when developing lessons which are interesting, balanced and relevant to learners’ needs. You have opportunities to explore the different ways in which pupils can develop understanding in science, and to become familiar with a variety of resources that can be used to support these.

Trainee teachers will prepare and demonstrate practical work of the kind undertaken by pupils and be encouraged to think about the implications for classroom organisation and management. A range of teaching approaches will be explored. Other important aspects of work at this stage in the course are laboratory safety, lesson planning, lesson evaluation and the use of ICT in science teaching.
