Teaching and Learning Resources

The LENScience Teaching and Learning Modules provide schools with the opportunity to develop learning experiences for 11 - 18 year olds that foster science and health literacy via exploration of socioscientific issues and the work of scientists contributing towards solutions to these issues. 

LENScience modules use a context-embedded inquiry approach. Contexts are linked to socioscientific issues of relevance to adolescents.

Modules are designed to support the development of capabilities (including knowledge) that support young people to become critically engaged citizens. 

Central to each of the modules are stories of science and scientists, enabling connections with the culture of science.

Links between the context, the work of the science community and the students and their communities supports adolescents to identify the relevance of the learning to their lives.

Professional learning and development resources support exploration of the pedagogy, science and health research associated with each module.

Central to effective use of the modules is the in-school process of linking the learning modules into the school programme and the local community setting.
