Show Details

“To learn” is a complicated and varied verb, especially in science. Learning takes place in multiple modes along multiple dimensions and with lots of different results; and many of us have experienced some of our best learning experiences outside of traditional classrooms or labs. How do we take experiences that might occur on a performance stage or in a city park, a small kitchen, or a vast desert and incorporate them into science learning for all? Especially as we emerge from the pandemic and its trauma, how do we take stock of where we’ve been and what we envision for the future of science learning? Adam will bring examples and experiences for us to reconsider the meanings of science teaching and learning in our classes and beyond.
