Educator's Symposium

Feuerbach's SymposiumOn the afternoon of Sunday 14 July there will be an opportunity to engage in an educator's symposium.  During this session delegates will be grouped in a variety of ways to discuss current issues and methods in teaching, learning and Science education.  This will be a chance to listen to how other schools and countries approach Science education and an opportunity to contribute to the discussion in a non-threatening environment.  No preparation is required for this session but delegates should come prepared to listen and contribute in equal measure.  The session will be facilitated by experienced staff from CSIA; who will guide people through each discussion opportunity.  We would like as many educators as possible to attend this session but recognise that for some this may not be possible.
