VCE programs at Melbourne Museum

VCE Health and Human Development ProgramStudents at the Melbourne Museum Road to Zero experience

The TAC, in collaboration with expert VCE teachers, has developed a free learning experience for VCE Health and Human Development (HHD) students at Road to Zero.

Using their own devices students can access an interactive website which guides them through the experience. The program immerses students in Road to Zero’s digitally interactive and highly engaging environment, while addressing key areas of the VCE HHD study design:

  • Unit 3, Area of Study 2 – Promoting health and wellbeing
  • Unit 4, Area of Study 2 – Health and the Sustainable Development Goals

As students are guided through the Road to Zero Experience Space, they are invited to apply their understanding of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and the Sustainable Development Goals to the important issue of road safety.

Students complete a range of hands on experiences, respond to short answer questions and have the opportunity to edit their responses after viewing high-level sample responses. Students receive an email copy of the revision notes they create at Road to Zero.

Consisting of three modules, the online experience enables students to revise key knowledge and apply key skills in preparation for exams and other assessment tasks.

  • Module 1: Action Areas Explore Victoria's road safety health promotion strategy, and then apply the action areas of the Ottawa Charter
  • Module 2: Health Promotion Strategies Consider how the Road to Zero experience reflects the health promotion strategies that underpin the Ottawa Charter.
  • Module 3: Sustainable Development Goals Explore how the Road to Zero experience is working towards achieving SDG 3 key feature ‘halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.’
