About This Event
The BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning, and Expertise Sharing) learning sessions are active experiences crafted to encourage instructors to look at specific aspects of research-based science pedagogy and to inspire shifts in instructors’ thinking about their own teaching and learning. Developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science, these hands-on and interactive sessions promote a student-centered approach to help participants better engage with science and the natural world through inquiry. This workshop will focus on Making Observations and Questioning Strategies.

- Explore different methods and model activities that can strengthen learners’ skills in making observations
- Analyze the impact of questions on student thinking and behavior, and use this information to make thoughtful decisions about when to use different types of questions in instruction. (Questioning Strategies)
