Join teachers around the state for a biology-focused professional development day: best practice in data processing, analysis and report preparation, useful for new and returning teachers who implement senior sciences. While delivered in a context for senior Biology, the data analysis techniques and skills covered are useful also to the senior Agricultural Science, Earth & Environmental Science, and Marine Science syllabuses. These skills are highly relevant to Internal Assessment 2: Student Experiment, but concepts and contexts presented are relevant to Internal Assessment 1: Data Test and Internal Assessment 2: Research Investigation.

You can attend in person or online. Recordings are available for all registrants.
