|Unit chair:||R Tytler (G)|
|Incompatible with:||EME439, ESS457|
The unit is inquiry-based. Its main aim is to create the conditions for students and practising teachers to engage in inquiries into science and environmental issues, linking their education setting with the local community and its resources, and the local environment. These inquiries generate the 'substance' or 'content' of the unit, which is organised around two assignments. The unit will utilise material from case studies of inquiry involving links between schools and the environment and community science resources.
This unit will be assessed on the basis of the two assignments and the learning log. The two written assignments are each worth 50% and are based on theoretical and practical aspects of contemporary science and environmental education. The learning log is a hurdle requirement.
Assessment will total 4000 words or equivalent.
