This course will look at a variety of teaching methods that will foster a collaborative approach to the teaching of A-level Physics. It will enable you to develop skills to encourage engaging and independent learning, that will support the achievement of weaker students as well as maximise the attainment of the more able.

  • Use collaborative approaches with your students
  • Use ICT to give effective feedback to students
  • Develop effective differentiated approaches that will challenge all abilities
  • Prepare students for higher education by developing research and presentation skills
  • Set high expectations and monitor progress through effective assessment
  • Encourage and support independent learning in physics


Finding out what works
  • Reviewing current practice to place the student’s progress at the heart of outstanding learning
  • The key factors of outstanding learning
  • What educationalists say about teaching approaches that work
Overcoming the range of abilities
  • Differentiation approaches to get the best out of all students
  • The importance of demonstrations and practical work
  • Stretching the most able student
Collaborative learning
  • Developing independent learning giving student’s ownership of learning
  • Motivating and engaging learners – effective group work, risk taking, failure and challenge
  • Review of resources and techniques for better learning
Monitoring and evaluation
  • Using self and peer assessment to monitoring progress to inform learning and teaching to maximise learning opportunities
  • Target setting, tracking and celebrating achievement
  • Evaluating your own successes and deciding your next steps
