Science Education

    Specialisation overview

    Overview

    Explore the current and future challenges facing science education, and learn innovative approaches to teaching and communicating science that lift engagement and performance.

    Inside and outside

    You’ll explore how science is currently taught and how it is increasingly connected to learning that takes place outside the school environment. This includes informal settings, through digital technologies and other disciplines such as engineering and environmental sciences. You’ll gain an understanding of how these developments require fundamental reconsideration of the goals of science education, its curricula and approaches to pedagogy and assessment.

    Please note: this specialisation is available within the Master of Education, and is not a separate course. The regular Master of Education CRICOS code applies.
