About Deakin

EES240 Primary Science Education 1

Students plan a 2-lesson sequence during their tutorial . The tutorial group visit a rural or regional primary school for two consecutive weeks and teach small groups of children - this replaces their normal tutorial that is held at university. This provides an opportunity to probe children's understanding of some basic science concepts. They analyse this data and present it as part of an assignment.   
Note: A high proportion of Education students from rural and regional areas and others from metropolitan areas undertake professional experience units in rural and regional schools.  By-and-large these units were not included in the survey.

Deakin University acknowledges the traditional land owners of present campus sites.
