RADMASTE-WITS SHORT COURSES IN THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF MST EDUCATORS

The RADMASTE Centre has been engaged in MST (Mathematics, Science, Technology) educator development since its inception in 1990. Over the period 1990-2014 a variety of mechanisms has been employed. Only in the last 5 years have Wits-accredited Short Courses been the preferred mechanism.  We review the experience we have gained with this mechanism, which we first implemented in 2009 in cooperation with the Limpopo Department of Education (LDE).

MICROSCIENCE

Good news for Microscience enthusiasts:

The Microscience Project will be continuing despite the closure of RADMASTE!

All Microscience resources: kits, worksheets and teacher guides will still be available to educators and their learners. We have recently completed the Grade 11 and 12 Physical Sciences Teacher Guides for CAPS, which means that there is an entire repertoire of FET Science resources available to meet the practical work demands of the CAPS.
