Event description

Description

SCIE1000, Theory and Practice in Science, is a foundation course in science that introduces students to the broad range of mathematical, analytical, conceptual and computational tools employed by scientists to develop, analyse and interpret models of scientific processes. This course currently has over 800 students enrolled to participate in weekly lectures and tutorials. The lectures assume pre-readings and aim to develop understanding through discussion (as a whole class and in small groups) and problem solving. The tutorials provide opportunities for students to work through problems individually and in small groups with tutors providing personalised help.

SCIE1000 is jointly taught by academic staff from three faculties: Science (Peter Adams, Peter O’Donoghue, Christine Beveridge, Anthony Richardson), EAIT (Marcus Gallagher) and HASS (Peter Ellerton and Joel Katzav). Most lectures are delivered jointly by Peter Adams and Peter O'Donoghue. Both have received national recognition for their teaching excellence, winning teaching awards and leading national teaching projects. Peter O'Donoghue is a previous winner of the Prime Minister's Prize for Excellence in teaching, and Peter Adams is Associate Dean Academic for the Science faculty. This group of teachers have excellent reputations amongst staff and students based on their dedication, passion and talent for teaching.
