Course description

To obtain permission to enroll please contact the Course Coordinator with details of current interests and needs that pertain to content and course goals (do you need to develop a work program, assessment, unit of work, or do you want to enhance your skills, or are you interested in testing or trialling an initiative in your classroom/school, or do you have other goals/interests?). Contact times for internally enrolled students will be arranged at the commencement of semester, via Blackboard or email. This course considers two key points: 1) science education exists at the centre of a number of tensions and on-going debates about its methods, approaches, rationales and role in society, and 2) different educators also have different concerns and interests in relation to science education and teach students at different stages of development and in diverse contexts. The course provides opportunities to develop an individualised project based on personal interests in relation to science education in the compulsory years. Based on these interests and the negotiated project , current research literature in relation to the project will be provided to support its development. Ample opportunity for guidance and feedback to assist with completion of the project are provided either face-to-face or electronically. This course may not be offered internally if the enrolment is less than 10 students.
