In programs since 2001, over 100 science teachers per year have attended the very successful Professional Development Course for teachers presented by staff experts from the Department of Pathology, UNSW. These programs attract science teachers from NSW regional and metropolitan centres as well as Queensland. Demand for these programs continues to be high, reflecting the interest by teachers in updating and expanding their subject knowledge and skills. This translates to greater enrichment and innovation for their classroom teaching and the learning experiences of their students.
