The changing face of science coordination

Rod Fawns

The role of school science coordinator goes beyond staff allocation, equipment stocktaking and laboratory and budget management. It calls for both technical skills and cultural sensitivity in curriculum planning, as well as empathy, enthusiasm, judgement and imagination. This week Curriculum Leadership publishes an interview with former science coordinator Lynden Fielding. The interviewer is Rod Fawns, a senior lecturer in science and maths, who also provides an introductory article. They discuss the changing roles and expectations of science teachers and science coordinators in schools.

A conversation with Lynden Fielding, Science Coordinator

Rod Fawns, Lynden Fielding

This is a conversation with Lynden Fielding at Princes Hill Secondary College, 5 April 2006. I’m asking Lynden ‘What do science coordinators do?’ It’s an investigation of the process of continued innovation and new expectations of the role of the science teacher and science coordinator as the role is in the process of being redefined.
