Professional development to support the new Earth and Environmental Science Curriculum

The School of Earth and Environmental Science has created two professional development workshops to introduce the basics of: 

  • soils analysis and the hydrosphere
  • earth materials and stratigraphy

An optional field day workshop will also be offered as part of the earth materials and stratigraphy session. 

These workshops will support teachers with the delivery of the new syllabus in Earth and Environmental Science.

Cost: $60 per session or $100 for combined earth materials and stratigraphy workshop and field day. Price includes all materials and catering.
