ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
How do you bring best practices in teaching science to the virtual domain? In this workshop, we will discuss the pros and cons of virtual labs, at home lab kits, and citizen science projects. We will explore ways to redesign labs in order to still meet lab objectives as well as how to analyze actual experimental data with students one one or in groups. Participants will have ample opportunities to share ideas and resources as well as their own challenges and successes with online science teaching.
This free workshop is only available to CATDC Member Schools.
