  • Overview

    In this subject students develop competence and skills to teach science in primary schools. We explore science, with a particular focus on the concepts within physical, biological and chemical sciences and the environment. Students will explore innovative pedagogies related to teaching and learning in science and investigate curriculum resources available for teaching science and environmental topics. We also examine contemporary issues that would be suitable for classroom exploration. ICT skills associated with accessing, processing and communicating in a blended learning environment are embedded within the course and utilised in activities and assessment tasks.
