Education professor releases new book

Professor Deb McGregor has recently published a new edition of her book Teaching Science Creatively.

The new edition of the book has been updated to reflect new research, initiatives and developments in the field of primary science. It is aimed at practitioners of science education, and explores key issues such as the links between scientific and creative processes, the role of play in early scientific learning, and using the outdoors in science.

The book has been inspired by Deb’s pioneering research around teaching primary science through drama, and is co-authored by Dan Davies, whose research and visits to primary schools in New Zealand inspired the first edition.
