The Monash Virtual School initiative was developed during the COVID-19 pandemic which saw large scale moves to virtual teaching and learning. This rapid change to education challenged many teachers, students and parents. In addition, pre-service teachers from around the world found their professional experience opportunities disappearing.
In an attempt to support local schools and families and to provide our pre-service teachers with opportunities to complete their professional experience, the Faculty of Education is launching a pilot project with local schools in which professional educators, Monash academics and our pre-service teachers will work in teams to develop free, quality online classes for secondary school students.
In Term 4, 2020 we have had 600 VCE students enrol in Physics and Chemistry revision classes covering a range of topics. There are a few places remaining in our last classes for the year. If you would like to register for one of the last few spots, please follow this link.
If you are a parent, student or school teacher who would like to be involved with Monash Virtual School in 2021, please email the academic director, Associate Professor Mike Phillips at: firstname.lastname@example.org
