Water science and sustainability 

This free online TPD showcases current research in water science and sustainability and supports teachers to create a lesson for their own class.

Teachers will hear from experts and scientists about aspects of water science covered in the secondary science Australian Curriculum. Discussion points may include:

  • Monitoring water resources so that they can be managed for sustainable use
  • Effects of a changing climate on rainfall and water availability 
  • Social, economic, political and cultural factors that can affect decisions about water management 

Participants will also participate in a Q & A session and learn about a new data set teaching resource about groundwater monitoring, suitable for Years 7-10, with extension activities for Earth and Environmental Science students.

Open to all Australian secondary science teachers, this course aims to create an online learning community where educators can share their lessons and provide feedback and support to other participants. This course is fully accessible online.

When: Wednesday 21 July, 4.00-5.30pm
