Abstract: This subject aims to provide theoretical background and practical experiences that explore the social, cultural, economic and environmental impact of food and its product development. Historical and contemporary perspectives of food production and processing will be explored, in addition to Australian food consumption trends, with an emphasis on how both influence food selection and nutrition. Safe and hygienic work practices and knowledge of the Food Technology teaching space and materials and equipment will be investigated within the context of education and current food industry practice. This subject will develop appropriate teaching approaches, design skills and planning considerations for safe and nutritious foods through a range of practical experiences, allowing students to make informed and appropriate choices with regards to ingredients, methods and equipment.
