New curriculum unit format

A new curriculum unit format including a student e-Notebook has been developed by the Science by Doing team.

The new format has a much improved navigation approach. It has been extensively trialled and refined. The feedback from teachers and students has been very positive.

All year 7 and 8 units have now been updated.

To examine the features of the new curriculum format, see the film clip New unit format.

The Science by Doing team are planning to replace all Year 9 units with updated units at the end of 2017 for the 2018 school year. The Year 10 units will be updated mid 2018.

Evaluation of Science by Doing

As a result of a tender process the Australian Academy of Science has commissioned a research team from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) to undertake an independent evaluation of Science by Doing Stage 4. The research team is led by Professor Peter Aubusson.

If you receive a survey from the UTS research team we would ask you to complete it. By doing so, the Science by Doing program can be improved even further so it better meets your needs.

New Professional Learning Module

A new professional learning module Implementing Science by Doing was released in January 2017. The module, like the other PL modules, consists of booklet, film and interactive digital component.

Besides examining the features of the Science by Doing program the module will assist school teams in developing a school plan to implement Science by Doing and innovation into their schools.
