COVID-19 support for schools and colleges

Remote teaching support for 11-14 14-16 16-19

The materials here aim to support the remote teaching and learning of physics during a time when most students, teachers and technicians are at home. They consist of:

  1. advice and guidance for teachers on how to best use on​line tools to work with your students;
  2. recommended activities that you can do with your students whilst they are at home.

Collections of resources by physics domain

You can also browse by resource type within these collections.

  1. Earth and Space
  2. Electricity and Magnetism
  3. Energy and Thermal Physics
  4. Forces and Motion
  5. Light, Sound and Waves

At home: Practical activities

The activities in the at home collection are designed for remote teaching. Making use of equipment that can be found in the home, each activity includes teacher notes and student instructions.

Online CPD events

The IOP will be running an online physics CPD programme, the DOMAINS programme, over the academic year. CPD sessions will be available for early-career teachers, more experienced teachers as well as coaches and CPD leaders.

Book DOMAINS CPD

We will indicate any additions to these pages via our news area. We will continue to tweet through @IOPTeaching.

Join teachers of physics, technicians, and their supporters on our online community, TalkPhysics, and share your experiences, resources or questions today.
