Feb. 21 Webinar: A Framework for K-12 Science Education

February 8, 2012

 

 

Last summer the NRC released A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas, which describes a vision for science education and three dimensions critical to that vision.  In this webinar, we will explore the framework and dimensions — especially the scientific and engineering practices — and discuss how they can be integrated into the education of new teachers and professional development for current teachers.  Presenters: Brian Reiser, member of the committee that developed the framework, and professor of learning sciences, School of Education and Social Policy, Northwestern University  Heidi Schweingruber, co-director of the project to develop the framework, and deputy director, Board on Science Education, National Research Council  Deb Smith, member of the committee that developed the framework, and assistant professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Pennsylvania State University   Date: Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012  Time: 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT
