We are excited to announce our all-new online short courses. Led by experienced teachers, Knowles Academy short courses are designed to improve mathematics and science teaching and learning. The number of participants in these courses is capped so that participants can engage in discussions with the instructors and other participants as they explore new tools and strategies to use in their classrooms to increase student engagement.
In this course, teachers will learn how their existing science labs can take center stage in engineering design challenges.
From Blab to Lab! How to Leverage Engineering Design for Increased Student Engagement in Science Labs
In this course, teachers will learn how their existing science labs can take center stage in engineering design challenges. Teachers will engage in an online design activity to construct a transferable understanding of the engineering design process and orient themselves to the Knowles Problem Definition Tool. They will map science practices and common classroom activities onto the process they create and reflect on how to use their existing resources and skills to facilitate student-centered engineering design integration.
Teachers who attend this course will leave with student-facing activities, tools, and a fuller sense of how science and engineering can mesh.
