CPD WORKSHOPS

Our CPD workshops can be delivered in-house at Dynamic Earth or as an outreach session in your schools. Our experienced learning team holds a wealth of experience and are always happy to tailor content to particular aims if possible. If you are interested in any of our CPD offering please get in touch for more details, prices and availability.

Creative Science: Explore the importance of creativity within the sciences.

By approaching science from a new angle you will discover how creativity is essential to STEM learning. You will also explore ways to enthuse and engage children in science using the creative arts. All activities are designed to  be easily reproduced in a classroom or playground setting with minimal resource costs.

Free resource packs for every participant.

Supports cross curricular CfE first and second level outcomes.

STEM Outdoors

 Discover the benefits of taking your pupils outside and how you can use your outdoor environment to enthuse them about science. This interactive session will look at the context for outdoor learning, provide practical advice on how to lead groups outdoors including planning and risk assessments and demonstrate a range of activity ideas for delivering science learning outside.

Supports cross curricular CfE early, first and second level experiences and outcomes

Outdoor Learning in Practice

All of our outdoor workshops are available as CPD options. We can run them for groups of teachers to demonstrate best practice outdoors and showcase activities. Alternatively, if you are looking to increase your confidence in taking your class outside participating in one with your pupils is a great way to be able to see how they respond to learning outside in a supported manner.
