What is the teacher's role in designing and facilitating KB discussion? Physicist, Dr. Tan Kay Chye will lead us to consider how the teacher might design and facilitate a KB discussion in the classroom.
Each session begins with experiment that is followed by a KB discussion (both online and face to face). Teachers will engage in authentic KB discourse with Dr Tan to build deeper understanding on the topic of light. Each session concludes with a discussion considering the role of teachers, students and technology in the KB design so that teachers can enhance their current practice; create similar KB discussion in their class. Dr. Tan will conduct two sessions, each with different experiments on light.
The aim of the sessions are to identify KB principles to replicate meaningful and impactful KB discussions in your subject and classroom. Teachers are welcomed to attend both sessions.
