Theory for HSC Biology Teachers (23/6)
This workshop is designed for teachers new to teaching HSC Biology plus those who would like to refamiliarise themselves with the content, background theory and make connections across the different modules of the HSC Biology syllabus. We will be unpacking:
- Genetic Change
- Infectious Disease
- Non-infectious Disease and Disorders
- Opportunities for Depth Studies
In addition, we will connect with the 'assumed knowledge' from the Year 11 syllabus.
Completing Theory for HSC Biology Teachers will contribute 5 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of Delivery and Assessment of NSW Curriculum/EYLF addressing standard descriptor 2.1.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
