Introduction

This course is an adapted extract from the Open University course Contemporary issues in science learning (SEH806) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]

This course provides an account of the major developments in the planning and delivery of the school science curriculum in the UK in a succinct and approachable way. The course was written in 2003 and although there have been a number of developments in the teaching of school science since that time, in particular the introduction of new science courses at GCSE level and beyond, the thinking behind such innovations is outlined in what follows, as it describes the transition between traditional and new style curricula.

This OpenLearn course provides a sample of postgraduate study in Science.
