Cal Poly Modeling Series

Summer 2021 Workshops will be offered in Virtual format


Cal Poly University’s Center for Engineering, Science, and Mathematics Education (CESAME) and the NOYCE Western Regional are pleased to offer three concurrent virrtual professional development courses this summer in:

  • Physics Modeling II - Modeling and Waves
  • 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 Online Modeling Course - Summer 2021

 
The Distance Learning Modeling Chemistry I workshop is structured inquiry approach to high school chemistry teaching that incorporates computer technology and insights from the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standard & current education research.
 

Location: VIRTUAL

Dates:  July 5-July 23

Tentative workshop times Monday- Friday 9am-12pm & 1-3pm 

Leaders: Brenda Royce and TBA

Cost: $750 (Free for Noyce and Cal Poly affiliated teachers, see information below*)

CEUs available through Cal Poly and graduate-level credits available at an additional fee

Biology I Online Modeling Course - Summer 2021

The Biology I Virtual Modeling Instruction is designed to outfit secondary biology teachers with the tools, experiences, and background needed to improve their biology instruction through the use of a proven and award-winning methodology known as modeling.

Location: VIRTUAL

Dates:  July 5-July 21

Tentative workshop times Monday- Friday 9am-12pm & 1-3pm (additional 1 hour of course time daily)

Leaders: Frank Novakowski

Cost: $750 (Free for Noyce and Cal Poly affiliated teachers, see information below*)

CEUs available through Cal Poly and graduate-level credits available at an additional fee

Physics II Online Modeling Course - Summer 2021

The Physics I Virtual Modeling Instruction is a workshop intended for teachers that have previously completed a Physics Mechanics Modeling Workshop and therefore are familiar with the modeling approach to teaching topics in physics. This workshop will continue to emphasize the model-centered, constructivist approach to teaching physics while addressing topics that include mechanical waves, sound, and the particle and wave models of light. Similar to Mechanics Modeling, this workshop will engage participants in structured inquiry labs and activities that are well-established and that are partly guided by the findings of physics education research.     

Location: VIRTUAL

Dates: July 5 - 16

Tentative workshop times Monday- Friday 9am-12pm & (additional 1 hour of course time daily-asynchronous)

Leaders: Jon Anderson

Cost: $750 (Free for Noyce and Cal Poly affiliated teachers, see information below*)

CEUs available through Cal Poly and graduate-level credits available at an additional fee

*The workshop is free for Cal Poly affiliated teachers and Western Regional Noyce participants and alumni, and they are eligible for a $250 stipend.
