Good Practice Guides for the Science Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs) have just been published by the Office for Learning and Teaching. The guides were commissioned by the Science Discipline Scholars, Professors Sue Jones and Brian Yates who led the project to construct the landmark Science TLOs.
There is a Good Practice Guide for each TLO. Each guide includes current examples of the TLOs in action in Australian university science degrees. The case studies are accompanied by a short review of relevant published literature and pointers to useful sources for background, new ideas and resources. The Good Practice Guides will be an excellent resources for science academics and will stimulate lots of new curriculum.
