Harcourt Hill Campus


Oxford Brookes PSTT Hub is offering a free taster day to share with teachers some of the exciting developmental work on creativity that is currently being carried out. The activities on the taster day will provide some interactive opportunities to engage with the materials and approaches that are being developed to support, enhance and enliven teaching for creativity.

The areas covered will include "Thinking, Doing & Talking Science", "Dramatic Science" and creative approaches to teaching about famous scientists. There will also be an update on some of our current research into creative practice that used appropriately can improve children&aphos;s attainment.

We hope that the day will offer many useful and information ideas for you to take back and use in your classroom.
