Theory for HSC Investigating Science Teachers (23/6)
This workshop is designed for teachers new to teaching HSC Investigating Science plus those who would like to refamiliarise themselves with the content, background theory and make connections across the different modules of the HSC Investigating Science syllabus. We will be unpacking:
- Scientific Investigations
- Fact or Fallacy?
- Science and Society
- Opportunities for Depth Studies
In addition, we will connect with the 'assumed knowledge' from the Year 11 syllabus.
This workshop can contribute to 5 hours of ‘Elective PD’ addressing 2.1.1 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
