LINCS Online Course: Engaging Adult Learners in Science

LINCS is adding the opportunity for professional development for its members in the form of a series of optional online courses developed by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education’s Literacy Information and Communication System (LINCS) Resource Collection initiative. These online courses are self-paced, freely available, and accessible 24 hours a day through the LINCS Learning Portal.

Do comments at end of online science articles impair readers scientific literacy?

Science teaching colleagues,

Do your students read about science online? If so, do they read the comments at the end of articles? Are they influenced (perhaps in bad ways) by the comments? If so, how do you address this problem? What else do you think is important to promote "science literacy"?
