Evidence-Based Teaching in the Earth Sciences: Where Are We Now?

Monday 4:30pm-5:30pm UMC 235


Nora Newcombe, Temple University

Over the past two decades, a rapidly-evolving science of learning has begun to develop evidence-based practices for education across the age range from preschool through university. At the same time, discipline-based education research (DBER) has been developing its own evidence and ideas about best practices in teaching particular scientific disciplines. This talk will review a variety of techniques that may be useful in earth science education suggested by the science of learning, evaluate the degree to which they are currently supported by evidence, and place them in the context of DBER approaches.
