Substantive knowledge Disciplinary knowledge Conceptual… know that… because… Liquids expand when they are heated . All measuring instruments, such as a thermometer, have a built-in degree of uncertainty. Procedural… know how to… and be able to… Draw a particle diagram for a liquid. Scientific enquiry integrates substantive and disciplinary knowledge, as explained in the table above, into an overall strategy to answer questions about the material world. In England, science is assessed at key stage 4 as either combined science worth 2 GCSE grades, or as 3 separate science GCSEs, commonly referred to as triple science. At key stage 5, pupils can choose to study A levels in the 3 sciences, as well as environmental science.

In this way, pupils learn how knowledge connects in science as they ‘see’ its underlying conceptual structure. Importantly, this sequencing pays careful attention to how to pair substantive with disciplinary knowledge, so that … Read More

This list of how to’s provides an essential guide for a number of key communication and engagement activities that will help make your research travel. The Nigerian Academy of Science is similarly moving along this path, says its president, Oye Ibidapo-Obe. “We will intensify that type of scientific lobbying in the future,” he says. In May 2021, the Royal Society will publish its definitive science priorities for an international and domestic UK climate technology roadmap.

Patrick Kelley, director of the US National Academies of Science’s board to ASADI, said with a smile that his organisation “educated”, rather than lobbied, policymakers. The report received a lot of coverage in the mainstream British media. It even made it into The Sun, a tabloid daily not known for its science policy coverage. And come the new government’s first spending review, science got a smooth ride compared with many competing budget areas. The question … Read More

Sport And Exercise Science Academies

Already, a small number of African academies are trying science lobby hats on for size. “We lobby for government funding for science and yes, it has made a difference,” says Paul Nampala, executive secretary of the Uganda National Academy of Sciences. Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society, said, “Science and technology are at the heart of many of the solutions the world needs.

Lobbying seems at odds with the usual role of such institutions in national policymaking — that of providing politically neutral science-based evidence for policy decisions. Opportunities for work based learning in the form of regular work experience, in some courses, provides students with invaluable experience, life skills and for some, additional qualifications in the area of study, thus making them desirable to future employers. Mr Lee from Sandringham, Mr Knowles from Verulam and Dr Hercus from Ridgeway became our local celebrities and put on a … Read More

From teacher professional development to early years innovation, we deliver expert-led support across the UK. Department curates online resource to help parents and teachers embarking on home-schooling during COVID-19. Any course which combines several disciplines tends to be compared nationally with courses in just one of those disciplines, and in such cases the Discover Uni comparison may not be an accurate or fair reflection of the reality of either. If you think you may wish to change course, we encourage you to contact a College admissions office for advice. You should also consider if/how changing course may affect any financial support arrangements.
