This short course is for current Chemistry teachers or those aspiring to become Chemistry teachers. It is particularly targeted to the NSW syllabus, which is mapped to the Australian Curriculum.
The aim of the course is to upskill teachers beyond the requirements of their students. This will give teachers the confidence to address the needs of their students, see connections between topics and address the needs of more capable students.
During this course we will conduct chemical investigations to identify and determine the concentration of ions in solution, perform qualitative chemical tests to determine the presence of key functional groups, interpret spectroscopic data to elucidate the chemical structure of organic compounds, and evaluate the range of factors to be considered when designing a chemical synthesis. Applications of the chemistry principles to industry and current research practices will also be provided throughout the course.
The identification, analysis and monitoring of chemicals is of immense importance in a number of fields, including scientific research, medicine, environmental management and mining.
This course goes beyond the requisite content knowledge of the NSW HSC Chemistry syllabus, enabling chemistry teachers to confidently deliver module 8 to students. The following content will be covered during the course:
Module 1: Substances in the environment
Module 2: Analysis of inorganic substances
Module 3: Analysis of organic substances
Module 4: Chemical synthesis and design

Morgan completed a Bachelor of Forensic Science in Applied Chemistry (Honours) degree at UTS in 2012. She then completed her PhD at UTS in 2018, on the development of new methods for the identification of psychoactive substances in seized illicit materials. Her research in this field of forensic chemistry and forensic toxicology has led to ongoing international industry collaboration and commercialisation of a presumptive test for the drug class, synthetic cathinones.
In her role as a Scholarly Teaching Fellow, Morgan coordinates, develops, and lectures into a number of chemistry subjects at UTS.
