Engaging teaching activities
Whether you're an undergraduate faculty member or a K-12 science teacher our suite of partner projects have materials you can use today. Connect with a community of peers as they share what really works in their classrooms.
Pathways to Progress
This report comprises a set of essays created during a two-and-a-half day writing workshop held in April 2012 at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. The goal was to develop a retrospective review that captured the nuanced outcomes and impacts of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL).
- InTeGrate is Pleased to Announce the Publication of a New Teaching Module: Environmental Justice and Freshwater Resources
Despite the fact that most people would agree that water is a shared resource, few think about who gets what share of fresh water. This module enables students to identify the freshwater components of the hydrologic cycle and connect them to the basic need of all human beings for equal access to clean fresh water.
- Interested in Creating the Best-in-class Curriculum Materials for Teaching Quantitative Research and Computational Skills to Geoscience Students?
MathWorks (makers of MATLAB®) and the Science Education Resource Center are partnering to develop and deliver a workshop focused on offering an opportunity for the leading practitioners in the field to participate and share their materials and ideas for teaching geoscience computation with MATLAB. Application deadline: August 28, 2015. For more information visit the workshop website
- Congratulations to Peter Bohacek Winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching Award
Peter, a physics teacher at Henry Sibley High School in Mendota Heights, MN, will receive his award (plus $10,000 prize money) in Washington this summer. Peter is project leader on The Direct Measurement Video project which aims to improve physics education by engaging students with high-quality videos of real-world physics phenomena. Congratulations Peter!
