Re-Thinking Science Learning & Teaching (Re-SLT)

This 1-day workshop is required for all new PDP participants, and will be offered twice in different locations:

November 16, 2007, Maui, HI
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM
Institute for Astronomy
34 Ohia Ku Street, Pukalani

November 30, 2007, Santa Cruz, CA

Re-SLT is not required for returning participants, but you may attend as a refresher before the March workshop.

This workshop includes:

  • Comparing Approaches to Hands-On Learning: Designed by the Exploratorium Institute for Inquiry (IfI), this unit gives participants a hands-on learning experience in three different ways, and is followed up by a reflective discussion on pedagogy and matching activity to goals.
  • How People Learn Science: Participants engage in a facilitated small group discussion on a reading assignment from “How Students Learn: Science in the Classroom.” Connections are also made to participants’ learning and teaching experience.
  • Lab Activity Design Presentations by Past PDP Participants
