Aim of Course
This one-day conference will provide an intensive and exciting programme for those with an interest in the teaching and learning of science and religion. It will suit teachers and trainee teachers of science and religious education in primary and secondary schools. Join us to share ideas; hear from lead-researchers; ask questions of an expert panel and to network over a buffet lunch (which is included within the fee). There will also be a presentation of the LASAR project initial findings. This is a three year project which is researching pupils’ perceptions of science and religion and which is also producing free resources for use in the classroom at www.faradayschools.com
Questions or comments can be emailed to Dr Berry Billingsley (LASAR project leader) at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Dr Keith Taber (LASAR project consultant) at email@example.com
Registration fee (which includes lunch): £20.00 (£10 for trainee teachers/students in higher education).
