Paul Andersen has been providing professional development and teaching labsites this spring on Zoom and Google Meet. This online workshop will focus on the best practices of online science instruction including; modeling instruction, argument-driven inquiry and phenomenon-based instruction. Participants will engage in scientific inquiry that is guided by authentic assessments and best practices. Come and experience this form of instruction with Paul Andersen as your online guide. Explore the wonders of science as you rediscover the curiosity that guided your childhood. Teachers should come prepared to do science!
2 x 4 hour session on two consecutive days with a half an hour break in between.
A primary device (laptop, tablet, or desktop) is best for the conference. We do not recommend a secondary device (phone) for a Zoom call of this complexity.
This workshop is designed for K-12 teachers of science working at international schools. The workshop progresses through the stages of UbD beginning with Stage 0 - Why should we change? Participants in the workshop will:
  • Gain a better understanding of scientific inquiry
  • Engage in online learning through modeling instruction and scientific inquiry
  • Utilize online tools (e.g. Zoom, Google Meet, Jamboard) to facilitate authentic learning
