Professional Learning

It’s not just about the pupils, we also offer the opportunity for teachers to develop or refresh their own knowledge and skills. We often run partnership events supporting the delivery of a wide variety of STEM subjects in innovative ways as well as our CLPL workshops.  We also offer free familiarisation visits for teachers, giving you the chance to experience the centre and facilities for yourself - please contact us in advance to arrange this.


We often team up with partners such as ScotDec, Edinburgh Primary Science Network and the RSPB to offer one-off CLPL events covering a range of STEM learning areas.  Be sure to keep an eye on our website or sign up to the Learning E Newsletter for more information on these opportunities!  Our next event is the launch of our new CLPL Online course, on the 17th September - read on for details on how to sign up!



Our CLPL workshops can be delivered in-house at Dynamic Earth or as an outreach session in your schools. Our experienced Learning Team holds a wealth of experience and are always happy to tailor content to particular aims if possible. If you are interested in any of our CLPL offerings, please get in touch for more details, prices and availability.

Creative Science:

Explore the importance of creativity within the sciences.  By approaching science from a new angle, you will discover ways to enthuse and engage children in science using the creative arts.  All activities are designed to be easily reproduced in the classroom or school playground, with minimal resource costs and using recycled items or readily available materials.

Now available as an online course!

Free resource pack for every participant.

Supports cross curricular CfE first & second level experiences and outcomes.

Outdoor Learning in Practice:

All of our outdoor workshops are available as CLPL options. We can run them for groups of teachers to demonstrate best practice outdoors and showcase activities. Alternatively, if you are looking to increase your confidence in taking your class outside, participating in one with your pupils is a great way to be able to see how they respond to learning outside in a supported manner.


CLPL ONLINE - Creative Science

Online Professional Learning Course Launch

17 September 2019 – 16:00-18:00

Thanks to funding from Education Scotland, the Dynamic Earth Learning Team have been embarking on a journey to transform some our highly popular CLPL workshops and resources into online learning materials. Our first course, Creative Science Online – exploring the value of embedding the creative arts into STEM teaching – is now ready to launch and we invite practitioners working with primary aged learners to be amongst the first to try out the content and provide us with invaluable feedback. There will also be the chance to input into the development of the next set of online materials which will be available for teachers in early 2020.

Pizza, snacks and drinks will be available for everyone to enjoy on the night as a thank you for your time, as well as complimentary use of the car park.

Please get in touch with us on with your name, school name, the number of places you would like to reserve and any dietary requirements. Places are limited.
