2011
Australian Learning and Teaching Council Limited

These Threshold Learning Outcomes cover the degrees of Master of Education (both coursework and research), Master of Teaching and other specialist masters degrees in education offered by Australian Higher Education Providers (HEPs) that meet the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) specifications for Level 9 qualifications. These standards were developed as part of a demonstration project funded by the Australian Government in 2010-11 and facilitated by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Academic institutions and teachers, professional bodies, accreditation bodies, and graduates participated in the development of minimum threshold learning outcomes for the discipline.

Enhancing the assessment of learning in Australian Higher Education: Biological Sciences

The discipline of biological science encompasses the long standing fields such as zoology, botany and anatomy, along with the more recently defined fields of biochemistry, ecology, genetics, developmental biology and others. Students often take highly general first year programs, later branching into more specialised sub fields. As the number of undergraduate students attracted to science declined steadily in the last decade, there has been a growing concern regarding the qualifications and capacity of teachers, and that of curricula to effectively prepare and enthuse young people for careers in the sciences (Harris et al., 2005). The purpose of this project was to develop and strategically disseminate resources designed to enhance the assessment of learning in the biological sciences in Australian universities. The project involved fieldwork on assessment issues, and studies of current approaches and best practice in eight Australian universities.

Twenty-six cases of current teaching practices are identified and described using a framework based on the degree of inquiry inherent in student tasks; the independence expected of students in performing tasks; the tasks’ learning objectives; and the learning environment. Six innovative learning designs incorporating educational technologies are presented in the Hand book. Recommendations are made about evaluating student learning of scientific inquiry skills. A website presents project findings.

Science for early childhood teacher education students (ECTES): collaboration between teacher educators, scientists and engineers

Christine Howitt

2010
Curtin University of Technology

This project aimed to develop early childhood teacher education students' professional capacities as effective teachers of science, through a collaborative approach between teacher educators and science/engineering academics. Five science modules were developed on the environment, day and night, forensic science, cleanliness and solar energy. The modules assisted the education students to teach science in the classroom in a flexible, integrated and engaging manner. A model of institutional interdisciplinary collaboration, based on the theoretical concepts of social capital, structural holes and social brokers, was developed.
