Symposium in Wroclaw 11. Secondary school physics Parallel 10 - Wroclaw


Dr Eilish McLoughlin


Transitions in education can provide several challenges for both students and teachers. Between the ages of 10 and 16 students undertake several transitions in their school lives. These include transitions across school systems (e.g. primary level to second level), transitions between different teachers, transitions across subjects (for example from a general science curriculum to a specialised physics curriculum). This symposium will discuss the approach and findings of the Supporting Transitions Across Mathematics and Physics Education (STAMPEd) project in supporting teacher professional learning and enhancing student learning outcomes across educational transitions in physics.
