ISDDE UK Meeting - May 2009
Design and development for science and mathematics education
ISDDE UK May 2009 was intended for all designers, researchers and curriculum leaders who feel affinity with the goals of the society. This meeting brought together outstanding designers, design project leaders and curriculum innovators, together with agencies which commission or support such work. The meeting took place on Tuesday 26th - Wendnesday 27th May, 2009 at the Nuffield Foundation in Bedford Square, London.
Summary reports on some of the presentations are now available - more will follow in the near future.
Many thanks to Angela, Maja and the others at Nuffield for making this event such a success, and to Sarah Codrington for producing the reports on the presentations.
Aims of this meeting
- To improve communication between science and mathematics curriculum developers, with the purpose of informing each other of current and planned work and to explore potential partnerships and synergies.
- To explore together two central themes for curriculum developers.
- To raise awareness of the ISDDE membership, international conferences and electronic journal.
Themes for the meeting
- Theme 1: How can educational design support assessment for learning and progression?
- Theme 2: What effective models do we have for bringing about innovation in schools and colleges?

About the Nuffield Foundation
The Nuffield Foundation is an endowed charity set up by the late Lord Nuffield.
The aim of the Nuffield Foundation Curriculum Programme is to explore new approaches to teaching and learning by developing, managing and supporting curriculum projects.
Currently the Nuffield Foundation is developing a cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning at key stage 3 based on the STEM subjects, and are setting off to rethink the Graded Assessment in Mathematics (GAIM) resources. In addition the Foundation is, among other things, revising the very successful Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology and Twenty First Century Science for GCSE courses in partnership with the University of York, and running websites providing information about practical work in school for non-specialist teachers of Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
