CPD for teachers

Client: Architecture + Design Scotland
Location: Different Primary Schools in Scotland
Time: 2011

Through Strathclyde University Kathy Li has been involved in devising and delivering a CPD programme for primary school teachers called 'Model School' which enables teachers to deliver the Curriculum for Excellence using Architecture and their school as a learning tool.  Designed as a series of modular lesson plans, the programme builds confidence in pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of their built environment, leading the whole class to design their own school.  The project is ongoing, and if funding is successful will be extended into this financial year.
