UNSW - Science

The Science Learning & Teaching Unit

Who are we?

The Science Learning & Teaching Unit was formed in 2003 in response to the need for a group of people to coordinate, facilitate and drive educational policy and initiatives within the Faculty. The Science Learning & Teaching Unit (formerly known as EdSquad) acts as a bridge for communication between academics, support staff and the Dean. We regularly collaborate with Learning & Teaching @ UNSW and the Associate Deans (Education) from the other Faculties at UNSW to pilot and implement major educational projects whilst ensuring initiatives are in line with Faculty and University policy and priorities.
