Emily Seeber

Bedales School
Head of Sciences
I am a chemistry teacher and head of sciences at Bedales School in Hampshire and I write for Tes and Education in Chemistry. Although I am interested in a wide range of areas, currently I am working on three pieces of research: ditching sets for mixed attainment grouping; the impact of teaching the ‘mole’ as a tool, rather than as content in students’ conceptual understanding; and the use of collaborative problem solving to engage girls in chemistry and physics.

I am passionate about teacher education, and in particular how to improve teaching and learning in practical science. I am currently studying for a master's in Teacher Education at the University of Oxford.
