Success Stories from Online Teaching

Presentations by Prof. Manjula Sharma (University of Sydney), A/Prof. Liz Angstmann (UNSW), & Dr. Kate Jackson (UNSW)

AIP NSW PEG bi-annual seminar, Thursday 28th May, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM [presented online via Zoom]

The focus of the meeting will be success stories from the sudden move online and how we can learn from these experiences to improve teaching in the post-pandemic world. We will also have  discussion of how we can support each other, collaborate on projects, and what members would like to focus on in future meetings.


Working with Secondary Teachers to Improve High School Physics Teaching

A/Prof. Liz Angstmann

A Scientia Education Academy Lecture, Thursday 21st May, 12:00 – 1:00 PM [presented online via Zoom]

There is a persistent recognised shortage of discipline-trained high school physics teachers apparent in both Australia and worldwide. Qualified and motivated physics teachers are essential in the secondary education system but are also important if we want more students to engage in STEM subjects at the university level. Currently the number of students choosing to take physics in years 11 and 12 is decreasing. Even more worrying is the decreasing proportion of females within this shrinking cohort. Part of a strategy to reverse this trend is to provide students with positive physics experiences throughout high school.

In this lecture A/Prof Liz Angstmann will discuss three of the ways she is working with secondary teachers to try and reverse this trend. These include the introduction of an online Graduate Certificate in Physics for Science teachers that provide qualified teachers the discipline-based knowledge to effectively teach physics; the introduction of a Visiting Teaching Fellow program where school teachers are seconded to UNSW for a year; and the introduction of SciX, a program to support students doing Science Extension.
