UWA SCIENCE COMMUNICATION SEMINAR SERIES- 23rd October 2009

This week we have two students, Sunita Pradhan and Andrew Mills, who will be
presenting a summary based on a detailed literature reviews completed for
the unit COMM7402 Specialist Research Topics.

Sunita has been teaching high school science and maths for about 5 years,
before coming to Perth to do a Masters of Science Communication and
Education.  Her talk is entitled: 'The Role of Excursion in School Science'.


Sunita will be talking about what formal and informal learning is and how
informal learning from excursions help students in learning science.  She
has looked at how the excursion helps in the progress in students' learning,
attitudes towards science learning and social outcomes, and the teacher's
role in facilitating learning outside the school and what are the
constraints faced while implementing this.



Andrew Mills will be taking a detailed look at the communication between GPs
and Alternative Medicine Specialists. Specifically the values and attitudes
of GPs (General Practitioners), Complementary Medicine Therapists and
patients and the impacts of acceptance of complementary and alternative
medicine.
