    Project Description

    The Victorian Department of Education and Training contracted Monash University, Faculty of Education to work with them on the Science Continuum Refresh to review and extend the currently archived Science Continuum to ensure not only that it maps with the current curriculum, but also that it offers to Victorian teachers contemporary evidence-based pedagogical approaches that take into account the most recent research into science conceptual learning.

    This research project will include:
    1) Review and audit of the integrated set of more than 50 science focus ideas, including:
    - Identification of ‘science focus’ ideas where research needs updating
    - Identification of and development of evidence-based teaching and learning activities for science focus ideas which require updating
    - Identification and development of STEM related contexts that research indicates supports the learning of science focus ideas.

    2) Full research base underpinning science focus ideas with updates provided, and highlighted where required.
