Science at COABE 2015

Science teaching Colleagues,

My presentation on Using Science Instructional Videos at the COABE 2015 conference was a big surprise. I expected a maximum of 50 people, and over a hundred showed up! There was standing room (and floor sitting room) only.  It looks like interest in adult education science is rocketing! Also, I met my first full-time adult ed science teacher, Kevin Laughlin. He is an Idaho Master Naturalist, and the Conference Co-Chair for the Mountain Plains Adult Education Association (MPAEA) Annual Conference in 2016. He told me that some of their science presentations at the 2016 conference will be outdoors. What a fabulous idea to do science in nature at a professional development conference. I have been hearing great things about the MPAEA conference for years, and this tops them all!  https://www.mpaea.org  You can reach Kevin at kevinlaughlin@peoplepc.com 

If you want to see the Using Science Instructional Videos slides that I presented at the COABE 2015 conference, check out the new COABE Adult Educator Resources database at http://adultedresource.coabe.org/browse/ You can browse all the resources, or choose those for science, where you will find my slides. 

I wonder what others' experiences with science presentations at COABE were. Let us know!
