The ASE Podcast - Episode Three: Reflections on the winter term so far, teaching physics as a non-specialist and dealing with behaviour challenges in the lab

November 1, 2020

In this latest episode, host Dr Andy Chandler-Grevatt and the pod team kick off by looking back on the first half term of what has been for many a challenging return to the classroom (... or has it?). Next up (at 17.20) Ben (of Physics Partners) and Trevor (from the IOP) tackle some of fears that many trainees and teachers have around teaching physics if it's not their particular field - while Luke shares a hard-won lesson about the importance of grounding a van Der Graaf generator. Finally (at 39.15) the team tackle a number of bad-behaviour scernarios thrown at them by Andy C-G... featuring gas taps, hair bands and some, er, industrial language on the part of a naughty pupil named Alistair (though, thankfully, not in the podcast!).
