Education 286: Research and Practice in Teaching and Learning Science

A course designed for scientists who want to learn more about inquiry teaching and learning

Spring 2005
CfAO Conference Room, Mondays 2-5 PM
Doris Ash, Education Department, UCSC

The course is designed for scientists who want to explore inquiry science teaching and learning. Although we focus on undergraduate and graduate level teaching, the ideas are applicable to those teaching community college, high or middle school students, as well as for informal learning settings, such as museums. The focus will be on three areas: research on best teaching practice, for example teaching in both small and large groups; learning, what research says about learners; and last, how both of these relate to science inquiry. Each class participant will be expected to design and put into practice a lesson based on these three main areas by the end of the quarter.

• This is a five-credit course;
• No prior education courses are required;
• One laboratory activity may be held at the Exploratorium;
• Regular meetings at UCSC, Mondays 2-5 in the CfAO conference room.
• We may have video teleconference links with other CfAO sites;
• Reader and text will be available at SLUG books.
• Enrollment is limited 15
