These modules are designed to be used by the person, or people, taking a formal or less formal leadership role in planned professional development for teachers of mathematics or science. For each, guidance together with a supporting PowerPoint presentation is provided for this leader; this suggests how the professional development session(s) could be run but it is expected that the leader will tailor the session to his or her own preferences and context. Handouts for teachers attending the professional development session are also provided.

We have put together some practical points to consider before running sessions: click here.

The modules can be used in any order, although it is recommended that you begin with Module 1.

There are six modules available:

Formative assessment in Science and
Mathematics Education (FaSMEd)
The Research Centre for Learning and Teaching
Newcastle University
