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
You’re my hero. Seriously, fantastic stuff.
Thanks for sharing this. I’ll be sure to pass this on and share myself!

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.
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.
