Product Overview

GutBugs@School 2019 PLD Course - Student Teachers

Gut Bugs is a workshop for teachers who are interested in learning more about the fascinating world of the human microbiome and its complex relationship with health and disease. Workshop participants will meet and hear from Gut Bugs scientists as they explore the science of the Gut Bugs trial and the TV Three “The Good Sh*t” documentary series.

There will be opportunity to discuss and share ideas about possible learning programmes with colleagues and Gut Bugs facilitators while reviewing Gut Bugs learning activities, resources and educational websites. Participants will make connections to the national curriculum, including the Nature of Science, science capabilities and science inquiry. Participants will explore the potential of narrative-based pedagogies as a learning tool. They will learn about the LENScience context-embedded learning model and related LENScience resources for learning through exploration of complex socio-scientific issues.
