Nowadays, the notion of professional and practice-based education (P&PBE) is a hot topic at tertiary education. P&PBE prepares the learners for profession oriented practice. It is always very challenging to introduce a P&PBE component within a service teaching subject in any academic fields. This paper focuses on the development of an effective teaching strategy for practical classes of a subject having highly technical and professionally applied contents at the university that directly tackles the challenge of introducing the P&PBE element in it. A case study has been conducted with an undergraduate level service subject in statistics for the science programs at the Charles Sturt University. Findings reveal that in the scientific subject a P&PBE component can be introduced as practical classes which foster profession oriented practice based problem-solving skills of students through a collaboratively effective and joyful learning environment. These findings are supported by some of the existing literature and the students' evaluation.
