CH 584 (3 credits)
Using Instruments and Online Interactions for Instructional Laboratory Experiments in the Sciences
Summer Session 2, June 23-July 18th, 2014
Dr. Michael M. Lerner and
Dr. Richard L. Nafshun
Department of Chemistry, College of Science, OSU
Dr. Matt Nyman
Science/Math Education Program, College of Education, OSU
Who should take this course?
- Graduate students in STEM fields
- Current elementary/middle school/high school teachers wanting to add to their technical skills concerning labs and/or needing continuing education credits
- Current community college and university level instructors
- Free choice learning instructors
Students will learn about the availability and implementation of lab packs, virtual instruments and “kitchen science” online activities for use in their instructional setting. Through hands-on exposure to the various methods of lab delivery, students will evaluate efficacy for their own teaching and learning practice. Working collaboratively with others, students will design lessons and units of instruction appropriate to their grade level of interest. These lessons will integrate learning with virtual instruments and online interactions to help learners grasp, visualize, and explain important science and math concepts and practices.
Student activities will be linked to state and national standards appropriate for their educational setting (e.g., for K-12 teachers Math Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards and the National Educational Technology Standards).
