NZASE: Supporting teachers with changes to NCEA
At NCEA Level 1, four new Nature of Science standards have been released (
). Two additional standards from each of: Biology; Chemistry; Earth and Space Science; and Physics are expected by the beginning of August 2021. Old standards will cease to be valid after 2022.
Adapting to these new standards requires a significant effort on the part of science teachers across New Zealand. Many of us are already doing our best to plan new courses or adapt our programmes to benefit the learning of our ākonga.
The New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE) has recently secured Networks of Expertise (NEX) funding to support teachers with the implementation of these changes. In order to make the most effective use of this, we would welcome your thoughts.
As a token of appreciation for your time and input, five $100 prizes will be awarded to randomly selected participants of this survey. Please include your email address if you wish to enter the draw.
All responses will be treated in confidence and only viewed by members of NZASE's executive committee.
