How To Re-Engineer Your Science Curriculum?


Exploratorium which is a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker is offering an online course called "Re-Engineering Your Science Curriculum". This 4-week-long course will commence from 6th April, 2014.

About the course:
This is a hands-on workshop that explores various strategies that middle and high school teachers can use to integrate engineering practices into science lessons and laboratory investigations that they already do. You will start by comparing and contrasting the research methods employed by scientists and engineers, then demonstrate ways that teachers can facilitate, sequence, and assess lessons designed to help students understand and apply engineering principles. These principles include learning to:
(1) Design within constraints
(2) Analyze and interpret data
(3) Construct models
(4) Conduct iterative tests
Upon completing this course, teachers will possess a deeper understanding of engineering and be able to effectively teach engineering processes to their students.

Paul Doherty, Julie Yu and Eric Muller will be the course instructors.
The course will have a work load of 3-4 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
