30/10/2019
12/11/2019

16:00 - 17:30

Venue tbc

These sessions are designed to provide an introduction to the theory of unconscious bias and to challenge thinking and practise. We will look at how biases form and their effects on our own behaviours, on pupils and on the learning environment. There will be chance for people to reflect on their own practice and to take activities and discussions back into their own schools. These sessions are applicable to people in early learning, primary or secondary settings.

Session 1 – 30.10.19
Unconscious bias and gender stereotypes: What is the problem?

This session provides the groundwork into recognising and challenging our own biases and those of others. We will look into the science of biases, how they form and the reasons we should be looking to challenge them. We will provide some activities to try yourself and with your colleagues in school.

Session 2 – 12.11.19

Bias and stereotypes in the classroom

We will start with an opportunity to share the effect of the activities you have tried so far. Following that this session will look at some the ways we can tackle biases. We will look at use of language, easy inclusive teaching tips as well as activities for the classroom, and the whole school environment.

Please note that both sessions must be attended.

West Partnership STEM TeachMeet

STEM TeachMeet

We are asking for teachers and educators from all establishments across the West Partnership to come together to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights into teaching STEM education.

West Partnership
East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Renfewshire, South Lanarkshire, West Dunbartonshire

TeachMeets are unconferences which are organised by teachers, for teachers. If this is your first time attending a ‘TeachMeet’, then first of all, thanks for joining us! There are basically 3 options to consider if you want to come along:

  •  7-minute ‘micro’ presentation
  •  2-minute ‘nano’ presentation

Be an observer by just coming along to see what’s happening.

Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

01 Feb - 30 May

Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

Glasgow City Council and JACOBS Engineering have teamed up to create an engineering and sustainable development challenge for primary and secondary schools. There will be 3 projects for pupils to choose from all of which should use engineering to tackle plastic pollution in the Clyde river. A resource pack will be provided for all participating schools.

Pupils will work with JACOBS to find a solution to their chosen project and then showcase their work at a celebration event in May. The project should be run with P6/7 at primary level or S1/2 at secondary with a team of up to 5 pupils. The challenge will last 10 weeks and will launch mid-February with a teacher twilight to talk schools through the 3 projects and give them an opportunity to hear from JACOBS. This is a great chance to both work with a major engineering firm in Glasgow and to engage with industry experts from the engineering and sustainable development sector.

Participating schools should ensure a member of staff is available to attend a teacher twilight on either 7/02/19 or 18/02/19. Both twilight session will run from 4pm – 5pm.

To express your schools interest please send a return via email to stem@glasgow.gov.uk by Friday the 25th of January 2019.
