Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society ›
Global warming and its effects are in the news all the time, because scientific consensus links warming to heat waves, droughts, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, stronger hurricanes, and changes in ecosystem function. But climate change is just one way human activities affect the biosphere. Our species has become the single most important driver of global change – which is why so many scientists refer to the present time as the Anthropocene, which means (more or less) “The age of humanity.” This talk will focus on the Understanding Global Change project, which aims to create a conceptual framework to help us get a handle on this complicated and interdisciplinary phenomenon.

On-Demand Journey Through Google Expeditions ›
How can you shift from presenting topics in isolation to creating learning experiences that integrate STEM education? COVID 19 has placed an emphasis on the ‘Why’ behind the need for STEM education. By integrating STEM, students gain understanding of topics as they figure out why something is happening or create a solution to a problem such as the current pandemic. The focus of learning needs to shift from the end product to the actual process of learning.
On-Demand Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science ›
Michael Padilla, author Elevate Science, presents Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science: Problem solving, inquiry and scientific practices continue to be a central element of science teaching. With the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, it is even more critical that teachers develop ways to get students to use scientific practices to problem solve and inquire. This session focuses on Next Gen practices and will outline teaching strategies you can use to develop these important skills.
On-Demand STEM INTEGRATION: It’s not about the product - it’s about the process ›

On-Demand COVID-19 and Other Dangerous New Viral Diseases: Where do they come from? How can we fight them? ›
SARS-CoV-2 is the newest viral threat to humanity, following HIV, SARS, MERS, and flu strains like the one that caused the 1918 pandemic. Why are some viruses so deadly? How do new ones arise and spread? Can we draw from experience to defeat this one? This webinar, ideal for online teaching, puts coronaviruses in context, invoking SEP’s, CCC’s and DCI’s in genetics, ecology, evolution, and immunology.
