HSC Physics Teachers: Experiments Using Online Simulations (22/6)

Price $280 – $603 AUD + GST Get tickets

Event description

This workshop is designed to up-skill teachers in how best to use a variety of online simulations (including many lesser known but excellent sims) to address a whole host of the experiments and investigations in the HSC Physics syllabus. Teachers will also explore opportunities for Depth Studies using simulations and work collaboratively to develop a depth study appropriate to their own students. Teachers will be focusing on the Working Scientifically skills using online simulations for:

  • Projectile motion
  • Circular motion
  • Orbital motion and gravitational energies
  • Charges in electric and magnetic fields
  • Motor effect
  • Parallel conductors
  • Spectroscopy
  • Diffraction
  • Malus's Law
  • Thomson's Experiment
  • Millikan's Experiment
  • Radioactive decay
  • and more

Completing HSC Physics Teachers: Experiments Using Online Simulations will contribute 5 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of Delivery and Assessment of NSW Curriculum/EYLF addressing standard descriptor 2.1.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

A Certificate of Completion will be sent to Graduate Teachers for their evidence

Workshop Delivered by Dr Simon Crook

Dr Simon Crook is a very experienced HSC Physics teacher and provider of Physics professional learning, with a PhD in Physics Educations Research (USyd) and a BSc (Hons) in Physics (Manchester). Simon has been working with many high schools and school systems to best prepare their teachers and students for HSC Physics, including his regular client schools. In addition, Simon has been in regular dialogue with STANSW, NESA and The University of Sydney, as well as having articles published in The Conversation and Australian Physics, regarding the Physics syllabus. As such, Simon is in the unique position of currently teaching to a wide variety of students while delivering many professional learning and student workshops around the Physics syllabus.
