Practical strategies for teaching Science to international pupils in the online classroom

Why should you attend?

If you teach a Science subject to international pupils in an online setting, this seminar will help you learn, refresh or build on your classroom strategies and teaching techniques to meet the needs of international pupils. This is a practical course which will help you to source suitable materials and consider how to support your pupils with both language acquisition and concept development online.  We consider the principles of language learning as they relate to subject specific teaching and learning, and relate this to CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).

Objectives:

To give Heads of Sciences and science teachers a better understanding of how concept development and language learning are related, so as to be able to support the needs of international pupils in the online subject classroom.

Speaker: Sarah Jinks
