Event description
Victorian Teachers! You are cordially invited to attend this 1-day Climate Change in the Classroom Professional Development Workshop.

About this Event

Monash University’s Faculty of Science, in partnership with the International Science Council (ISC) and Royal Society of Victoria (RSV), is facilitating a 1-day Climate Change in the Classroom Teachers' Professional Development Workshop on Friday 24th May 2019. We cordially invite you and your colleagues to join us at the home of the RSV in Latrobe Street, Melbourne. The line-up include several School of Earth, Atmosphere & Environment (SEAE) academics who will be focusing on a number of aspects of teaching climate change in the classroom including:

  • The Knowns and Unknowns of Climate Change
  • The Australian Climate and Climate Change
  • Mythbusters: The top ten bad arguments about climate change put under the microscope
  • Q&A and breakout sessions

We will also be showcasing the Monash Simple Climate Model and discussing how SEAE academics have integrated Climate Change Science into high school lesson plans.

For further information, please email Dr James Driscoll [james.driscoll@monash.edu].

This Professional Development Workshop is free and open to Victorian Teachers. Bookings are essential as there is limited availability [Our 2016 event was oversubscribed]. We look forward to seeing you on Friday 24th May 2019 for this Climate Change in the Classroom Professional Development Workshop!

Mangrove and Salt Marsh environments (Toora, eastern Victoria) are sensitive to changes in sea level.
