Curriculum Resource Centre (CRC)
The Curriculum Resource Centre (CRC) is maintained by the School of Education at Murdoch University in Western Australia to enable students to graduate with a knowledge of current teaching resources and an opportunity to explore the innovative use of resources.
The CRC provides patrons with valuable collections on two campuses. On the South Street Campus a variety of teaching resources are selected to extend the knowledge of student teachers in the areas of Early Childhood Education, Special Education, Language Education, Primary Education, Secondary Education and Multicultural Education. On the Rockingham Campus students have access to a wide range of teaching resources to support Primary Education as well as accessing the Childcare and Assistant Teacher resources offered by Challenger TAFE within the Rockingham Regional campus Community Library.
Everyone is welcome to use the Curriculum Resource Centres on site at the South Street campus and the Rockingham campus, but only staff and School of Education students at Murdoch University may borrow the resources.
