This is a really challenging time for teachers, technicians and students; and the IOP teaching team are looking at how we might be able to help during the period in which most students, teachers and technicians will be based at home. Specifically, we are aiming to:

  1. continue our support for teachers of physics by moving some of our workshops online;

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

We will post weekly updates here. And 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.
