ASELL For Schools – Victorian Node

ASELL for Schools aimed to develop laboratory learning activities (LLAs) infused with contemporary science practices, contexts, and structured to foster student engagement and to model inquiry-based learning.

The ASELL for Schools – Victorian Node team worked with schools and teachers providing professional development aimed at enhancing science learning through laboratory learning activities. With the inclusion of investigations in each of the VCE sciences, students will, more than ever, need to have strong science inquiry skills at Year 11 and 12. Junior science curricula need to be structured to ensure the sequential development of these inquiry skills.
