A message from the Executive Dean of Science:
Our communities are facing unprecedented challenges as they adapt to the impact of the current global pandemic. Over the past few weeks the University of Western Australia has worked to make learning resources available to schools and teachers across the State in response to COVID-19.
The University has drawn on a range of existing resources and staff have volunteered time to support teachers, parents and high school students faced with the unexpected challenges of providing tuition on-line. Our intent is not to replace the high school curriculum but to provide teachers with ways to enrich the student experience by providing access to a range of on-line learning materials.
We are offering this support to all of our high school teachers across WA and welcome feedback on the usefulness of the resource. Professor Tony O'Donnell, Executive Dean of Science
