Instructor: Multiple   3 Graduate Credits

Drake Course #EDMT 275

Please Note - Andrews University will process no more than 18 credits per session, and transcripts reflect the session in which you complete the course.

Phenomena are natural events that spark wonder, and inspire scientists to investigate and learn about our universe and our place in it. Tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, moonbows, and decomposition are some examples of phenomena that have inspired scientists to ask “why?” and “how?” These same phenomena can spark curiosity in our students. In this course for K-12 science educators, participants will learn the steps to design and implement an engaging phenomena-based learning experience and participate in inquiry-based media-driven learning where they will  interact, clarify, question, and design meaningful learning experiences for themselves and their students. Participants will explore and apply digital tools to set goals, research, track progress, and show learning. Participants will collaborate via online communities to discuss and share lessons and strategies.

This is a hybrid course with both face-to-face instruction, as well as online classwork.  The skills and strategies explored in this course can be applied to all content areas. 

This course has previously been approved for METHODOLOGY.
