Addresses key biological science understandings, and provides the extended content knowledge required to address the demands and opportunities of the secondary school biological science curriculum.
Emphasis is given to inquiry-based practical work, demonstrations, co-operative group work, whole class discussions and use of information communication technology, to ensure effective learning and teaching practices in secondary science. Planning, teaching, and assessment strategies are developed within a range of science content areas.
All applicants are required to demonstrate satisfactory performance in Biology ATAR or Chemistry ATAR or Human Biology ATAR or Earth and Environmental Science ATAR or Integrated Science ATAR or Physics ATAR, with equivalents considered.
Good question. But don't ask us – ask our graduates.
It's what we do every year…Find out more
It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.
We've also learned that we're now Australia's top ranked public university for student satisfaction.
And Times Higher Education tell us we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.
So the real question is, why not choose ECU?
Students are required to complete 10 Content units and 2 Curriculum units. Content units educate students in the subject area and the Curriculum units explain how to teach the subject area to others.
