  2. SCIENCE Dr. John McCullagh, Senior Lecturer, Stranmillis University College, Belfast. What did we do? – Interim Report here • 24 final year student teachers ( 6 teams of four students, 3 KS1 classes, 3 KS2 classes) • Theory on: informal/formal education, role of external agencies, management of school trips • Co-plan, co-teach, co-evaluate • Lessons before and after trip to W5 • Produce video and VideoPaper Look for opportunities to ‘connect science’. Why? • Revised Curriculum for N. Ireland promotes topic integration and skills development- Implications for ITE • Science no longer a core subject- Where does Science fit? 15th May 2009

  3. SCIENCE Dr. John McCullagh, Senior Lecturer, Stranmillis University College, Belfast. Why…cont? • Pedagogical context: • Develop professional competence (practice, reflection, collaboration) beyond annual ‘teaching practice’. • Develop schools’ practice w.r.t visting a centre: • 45 % of teachers surveyed do not teach lessons in preparation of a visit • 23% of teachers do not teach any follow up lessons. • 35% teach only one follow up lesson • “ Too heavy and the fun is lost” • “W5 visit was for consolidation of the topic” (Haffey,G (2008) ‘Does a trip to W5 influence classroom teaching? A survey of teachers’ practice.’ Unpublished Final year dissertation SUC) 15th May 2009

  4. SCIENCE Dr. John McCullagh, Senior Lecturer, Stranmillis University College, Belfast. Where and When did you learn?-Evaluation • Questionnaires before and after, focus group interviews • VideoPapers Biggest changes in…? • Potential for W5 to support other (than science) areas of curriculum • Confidence in teaching science (from 57% to 100%) • Confidence in linking science to other areas (14% to 100%) • Greater awareness of merits of using W5 than before project 15th May 2009

  5. SCIENCE Dr. John McCullagh, Senior Lecturer, Stranmillis University College, Belfast. What was useful? • Co-planning: greater pool of ideas-subject specialists • Peer observation and evaluation: Pick up tips, strategies, enhance discussion on shared experience • Team approach: Felt supported, take risks and extend practice. Enjoying and learning • Video: A literally new perspective on self-evaluation, observe connected learning from W5 to classroom 15th May 2009

  6. SCIENCE Dr. John McCullagh, Senior Lecturer, Stranmillis University College, Belfast. Teachers’ Comments • “ The project cemented in my mind the importance of good preparation” • “I see now the benefits of visiting the centre before the trip.” • “I tended not to do much follow up work. I was amazed at how keen the children were to talk about the experience and they wanted to investigate more.” Students evaluation video 15th May 2009
