Did you know we have four professional development courses related to Science? Follow this thread to learn more about these courses and I work through each of them over the next several weeks. Or, better yet -join me and let's work though them together.
Check out (1) Engaging Adult Learners in Science, (2) Scientific Practices in Context, (3) Project Based Science Instruction for Career Preparation, and (4) Teaching Energy Literacy to Adult Learners.
I'm starting with Engaging Adult Learners in Science, This course provides an overview of the relevance and importance of science in the adult basic education/adult secondary education (ABE/ASE) classroom and introduces the use of scientific practices in the ABE/ASE classroom.
Scientific Practices in Context: This course provides an overview of the relevance and importance of science in the adult basic education/adult secondary education (ABE/ASE) classroom and introduces the use of scientific practices in the ABE/ASE classroom.
Project Based Science Instruction for Career Preparation: The course is self-paced and is comprised of three sessions which include the following:
- Using Project-Based Learning to Connect Science Instruction to Daily Life;
- Preparing Adults for STEM Careers via Project-Based Learning; and
- Mapping Science Education to Career Paths.
Teaching Energy Literacy to Adult Learners This course explains the concept of energy literacy, and introduces the Energy Literacy Framework developed by the U.S. Department of Energy. Educators can use the Framework (available in English and Spanish) to teach adult learners about the role of energy in their lives and to generate potential interest in energy as a career field. This course explores the Fundamental Concepts of the seven essential principles outlined in the Energy Literacy Framework and provides examples of online resources teachers can use to teach the principles and associated concepts to adult learners.
Join me and take one or more of these courses.
