Afternoon Mini Workshop

Scientific reasoning is complex and many of us have experienced our students struggling to excel in this skill. In this interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to an instructional framework that our research project has tested to help improve undergraduate students' reasoning through a connection with data literacy skills.  We will share and explore online interactive data visualizations of oceanographic data, lesson plans and an assessment rubric.
