Agricultural Science Resource & Induction Workshops

The newly formed Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST - which will replace the SLSS) is organising a series of induction courses for newly qualified or first time agricultural science teachers this October. The induction courses will take place in three locations - in Laois, Cork and Galway. The participants will each receive an induction pack containing invaluable resources for the first time teacher of agricultural science. Click here to find out about times, dates and how to book. During November, the PDST are organising 11 resource workshops for agricultural science teachers, both newly qualified and experienced, to launch their new Resource CD for agricultural science. The CD will contain a whole range of resources for teachers including a full set of lesson presentations, quizzes, tests, images, video content, teaching strategies, exam archive material, laboratory advice and guidelines, information on the practical assessment and much more. It will be an essential tool for teaching agricultural science. The CD has been prepared by teachers for teachers. The workshops will also be a great opportunity to meet other agricultural science teachers in your area and to share collective experience.

In other agricultural science news, the Irish Agricultural Science Teachers' Association have just launched their new website (www.iasta.ie). Details of their up and coming annual seminar are now available on the website including the booking forms by clicking here. The event this year is being held in Maynooth and the UCD Lyon's Estate and is sure to be a brilliant few days as usual.
