The course will include hands-on sessions based around the DPSM/ESERO Framework for Inquiry and a range of classroom based activities, which have been developed, tested and used widely by primary teachers. The DPSM/ESERO Framework for Inquiry has been developed by DPSM facilitators & teachers working with science education specialists and is designed to be used in the planning and teaching of a topic, or theme, on the SESE Science curriculum. SEAI’s Primary Schools Programme, developed by DCU (formerly St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra) will be covered in the latter part of the summer course. The programme is designed to support children develop their knowledge about energy, energy efficiency and conservation within the SESE curriculum. During the 2 days, teachers will do hands on activities and explore energy and science in a real world way, expanding their knowledge about how and why as a society, we need to develop new ways of looking at our energy resources.
This course qualifies for the Department of Education & Skills EPV Days.
