As Director of Learning of The Physics Factory in England, I gained national acclaim for improving the quality of physics teaching. Hundreds of teachers have benefitted from my diligent and thoughtful approach to teaching physics. The wide variety of teachers I’ve worked with will all testify to my dedication and supportive approach. Above all the students I teach very soon ‘pick up’ on my genuine concern for their success in what some perceive to be a difficult and inaccessible subject.
Self-paced course with fifteen modules – to be completed at your own pace.

These ‘engaging’ physics courses are aimed at teachers who are non-specialists who want to develop their subject knowledge and learn about ‘easy to implement’ strategies to engage their students.
