Free CourseFree Course Featuring: AudioAudio

Is your science teaching very western-oriented? This free course, A global dimension to science education in schools, is aimed at those teachers who would like to give a more global feeling to their teaching. You will learn how to source scientific articles with a greater emphasis on science and technology beyond the western world and experience how such articles can be incorporated into teaching within the National Curriculum.

In this unit we will look at:

  • why the global dimension in science is so important;
  • what contributions have been made to science by ‘non-Western’ scientists;
  • how to deliver the curriculum so as to bring global science to life for students. Many teachers have found that including the global dimension in science is exciting and motivating for both teachers and students – we hope you do too!
