Cal Poly Modeling Series
Workshops will be offered July 10 - 21, 2023.
Cal Poly University’s Center for Engineering, Science, and Mathematics Education (CESAME) and the NOYCE Western Regional are pleased to offer 2-week professional development courses this summer in:
- Physics Modeling I
- Chemistry Modeling I
- Biology Modeling I
These workshops are structured inquiry approaches to high school chemistry, physics and biology teaching that incorporate computer technology and insights from current content & education research. Teachers will develop skills in fostering scientific discourse and presentation and in assessment of student learning. By designing and carrying out a series of investigations that use the Modeling Method teachers will practice Socratic questioning techniques that will enable them to teach physics, biology and/or chemistry using the Modeling Method.
Chemistry I Modeling Course - Summer 2023
Biology I Modeling Course - Summer 2023
Physics I Modeling Course - Summer 2023
