Upcoming EDDIE Webinars
December 12, 2022, 10:00 am PT | 11:00 am MT | 12:00 pm CT | 1:00 pm ET
Presenters: Kathleen Browne, Rider University, Andrea Drewes, Rider University, Sage Lichtenwalner, Rutgers University, and Gabriela Smalley, Rider University
Scientific reasoning is complex, and many of our students struggle to excel in this skill. With the support of an NSF IUSE grant, we are currently testing a new strategy built into intro oceanography courses, with early results showing success. During our DCER instructional framework, students initially are asked to thoroughly describe an online, interactive data set. We then guide students to use evidence from the data descriptions, relevant science content, and scientific reasoning to support a conclusion. This session will provide background on our strategy and hands-on experience with some of the steps we use to guide our students. We will use examples in the ocean sciences that attendees could adapt for other content areas.
