Content

Environmental Science Curriculum Inquiry Senior Years is a hands-on unit that will prepare you to teach Earth and Environmental Science (based on the Australian senior secondary curriculum with comparison to other state and territory curricula).

This unit is offered via a series of modules each supported by learning materials and intensively offered seminars and, where appropriate, field excursions. Cloud students will be provided with support materials that will enable field excursions in local environments.

This strategy will have you experiencing learning tasks that will be useful with your future students. The assessments focus on designing curriculum sequences and conducting practical investigations and designing appropriate teaching and learning resources.
