The Open University, in collaboration with Oxford University, has developed a website providing resources to support teacher-training in schools, colleges, universities and other sectors. These resources have been designed to help teachers to enhance students’ deeper understanding in difficult-to-learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects. They guide teachers through a process to identify, capture and assess difficult knowledge that causes barriers to their students’ understanding. The website is at http://tricky-topics-guide.ac.uk/
Coming soon is a new free online course on Tricky Topics.
