This subject prepares effective beginning secondary science teachers, setting a foundation for continuing professional learning. Students apply their educational studies to teaching – to design, organise and evaluate methods and materials for teaching - and use their own theoretical framework as a basis for their future teaching. Students are challenged to draw on their learning in core subjects. They are encouraged to think holistically about the impacts and influences on how the science program is taught, with a strong emphasis on using curriculum, assessment and reporting to organise content into effective learning and teaching sequences for units of work. Through an inquiry-based approach real problems and questions are identified and explored by teams that are pertinent to students' professional learning needs.
