Overview

The College of Teachers: professional inaugural lecture

Professor Derek BellProfessor of Education, The College of Teachers; and Chief Executive, Association for Science Education

Watching accomplished teachers interacting with their pupils and sharing their knowledge, interest and enthusiasm for a subject makes teaching and learning look easy. Such scenes are, despite appearances, hard won and and depend on the combination of skills, knowledge and understanding developed by teachers and their experience to use these to their best effect in a given situation.

This lecture will explore some of the ingredients that contribute to such situations in science and asks whether we are learning our lessons as we move forward in developing science education for the rest of the 21st century.
