Teaching Innovations Short Course

Wandersee, James H. [1], Sundberg, Marshal [2].

New BSA Teaching Innovations Short Course.

This 4-hr. short course, co-taught by two experienced full professors with decades of plant biology education experience, is offered especially for graduate students, prospective and new plant sciences faculty, and others interested in innovation. It is designed for those who seek an optimized and prioritized overview of the latest thinking and research on successful, 21st-century, college science teaching. Use of e-Learning, active learning strategies, computer-based concept mapping, findings of misconception studies, and research-supported course organization strategies for teaching large classes will be highlighted. The course is comprised of a carefully structured series of mini-presentations and activities that maximize every minute of the Congress attendees’ time. The short-course text book, Active Learning in Secondary and College Science Classrooms, will be supplied to each participant for annotation during the course. Each course completer will receive an official BSA 2007 Professional Update Course Completion Certificate with a value of .5 CEU (continuing education unit).
