Astronomy Teaching Workshop

Center for Astronomy Education (CAE) Southwest Regional Teaching Exchange
May 6, 2017
presented by CAE Southwest Regional Teaching Exchange Coordinator, Rica French (MiraCosta College)

CAE Regional Teaching Exchanges are designed to foster a sense of community amongst geographically linked current and future Astro 101 instructors. Those at CAE don’t want you to feel isolated, and they don’t want you to have to wait to attend (or re-attend) a CAE Tier I workshop to continue your professional development. They have regional experts from the broader CAE community ready, willing, and able to provide the opportunity for you to meet your neighbors, expand your instructional repertoire, and share your own expertise.

So grab your colleagues—instructors, graduate students, and postdocs, alike—and join the Exchange!

Additional information and registration can be found online.

Summer Teaching Workshops

More than 60 summer Modeling Workshops™ in high school physics, chemistry, physical science, biology, and middle school science will be offered, in many states. Most are two or three weeks long.

CEUs; optional graduate credit. Stipends at grant-funded sites.
Modeling Instruction is research-informed, interactive engagement pedagogy.
Ask your school administration to help pay. Mention the research on NGSS readiness: Modelers are better prepared to transition to NGSS than other teachers, research shows.

ABOUT MODELING INSTRUCTION:

Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program and a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department of Education.

Modeling Workshops are peer-led. Content is reorganized around basic models to increase its structural coherence. Participants are supplied with a complete set of course materials and work through activities alternately in roles of student or teacher, as they practice techniques of guided inquiry and cooperative learning. Models and theories are the purpose and the outcomes of scientific practices. They are tools for engineering design and problem solving. Thus, modeling guides all other practices.

Each MODELING WORKSHOP has these features:

Aligned with National Science Education Standards
Focuses on all 8 scientific practices of NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education.
Addresses multiple learning styles.
Addresses student naive conceptions.
Collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking.
Systems, models, modeling.
Coherent curriculum framework, but not a curriculum; thus flexible.
Compatible with Socratic methods, project-based instruction, PBL, etc.
Science & math literacy.
Authentic assessments.
High-tech and low-tech options for labs.
