Increasing Engagement in Science

As part of a session on innovative practices in science at TeachMeet New Jersey 2011, I gave a presentation entitled “Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Increasing Engagement in Science”

I have posted that presentation, complete with speaker’s notes and plenty of links to further information, here: http://bit.ly/EngageSci

Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! (e.g., is there a bigger theme I am missing, etc.) Thanks! J3BC3J3HSY8J

  4. Nicely communicated. I am seriously rethinking my teaching as a result of your blog, and I am a PAEMST awardee. You communicate your ideas very well.

    I give students the charge of discoverong the exit velocity of a paint ball from a paint ball gun as summative practical assessment. It involves a design challenge and an application experiment as well as being partial inquiry. In fact I do multiple things I am proud of but I spend a great deal of time pseudoteaching.

    Thanks for making me think.

  5. A colleague pointed me to your website and it seems interesting. I was hoping to watch your presentation to learn more. Would it be possible to put the file back up? Thanks.

  6. The link in the post should work: http://bit.ly/EngageSci
    If it doesn’t work, let me know.
    You will have to scroll down to see all the slides and slide notes.
