15 points



This course supports pre-service teacher development of curriculum knowledge and pedagogy of teaching Science and Technology in schools in Aotearoa/ New Zealand. Using research, future-focussed themes and issues that integrate Science and Technology, pre-service teachers critically examine and explore the Nature of Science and Technology through engagement in authentic contexts. Through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes, pre-service teachers will be better informed to successfully plan, resource, implement, assess and evaluate these learning areas. The course will complement learning in other courses in the Postgraduate Diploma of Teaching and Learning (Primary), including Professional Practice.
