Local CPD
Tactile Collider is a project that aims to make science accessible to all, including people with visual impairments. We invite educators to join us for a CPD session looking at how tactile maps, objects, sounds and technology can be used to enhance teaching.

The session will include a brief introduction to the project and the challenges faced by sight impaired students when accessing science. We will introduce the strategies and methods of teaching which allow our audience to fully engage with the concepts.

Delegates will then be able to explore the resources and talk to the team about ways of making lessons inclusive for all.

This session isn't just aimed at teachers of science, it will be of interest to all educators who deliver all subjects to all age groups. This session will be useful for all teachers and unmissable for teachers of visually impaired pupils.

This event will be followed immediately by an open event. Delegates will be welcome to stay and explore the resources further should they wish.
