Senior Secondary Science Pedagogy EMT630

Hobart

Note:

Minimum enrolment number of 12 applies to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the on-line offering and advised of this change before semester commences.

Introduction

This unit builds on the knowledge and skills developed in the previous unit, but focuses more deeply on science pedagogy in complex and authentic contexts, including the demands of the senior science syllabi (years 11 & 12).  Further development of confidence and competence in science pedagogy at the lower secondary level (Years 7 to 10) is also addressed. STEM learning design principles are examined and greater recognition is paid to the nexus of learning outcomes, assessment and unit design with the aim of developing professional teacher judgment through the analysis of student work; the role of assessment in student learning and its importance in the design of curriculum is examined through literature, reflective practice and critique of student work.
