Content

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.
