This course is aimed at helping Stage 6 Biology teachers learn the theory in the new Year 12 Biology syllabus and provide effective teaching strategies and resources that focus on the four main areas of the Year 12 course. We will be examining:

  • Heredity,
  • Genetic Change,
  • Infectious Disease and Non-infectious Disease,
  • Disorders.

We will be examining various methods of science pedagogy to facilitate student acquisition of knowledge and experimental skills. The new syllabus will be examined further, paying particular attention to learning opportunities in the Depth Studies. There will also be an exploration of activities to further enhance 7-10 Science.

This course is best done in conjunction with Year 12 Experiments for the New Biology Syllabus.
