Cal Poly Modeling Series

CHANGES HAVE OCCURRED DUE TO COVID-19, SEE UPDATES BELOW

 

Chemistry II Online Modeling Course - Summer 2020

 
The Distance Learning Modeling Chemistry II course is intended for teachers who wish to investigate a model-based approach to concepts not addressed in the Modeling Chemistry I workshop. These include an evidence-based treatment of the internal structure of the atom, periodicity and covalent bonding, intermolecular forces, equilibrium and acids & bases. This should appeal to teachers of an honors or AP course whose students can move through the basic concepts more rapidly. 
 

Location: VIRTUAL

Dates: June 22 – July 10, 2020

Leaders: Brenda Royce and Larry Dukerich

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

REGISTER HERE(Noyce and Cal Poly affiliated teachers should see information below* for discount code)
 

CEUs available through Cal Poly and graduate-level credits available through University of the Pacific.

 

Proposed weekly schedule:

Week 1: Mon-Thurs 8:30-12:30, Fri 9:00-11:00 (optional office hours)

Week 2: Mon-Thurs 8:30-12:30, Fri 9:00-11:00 (optional office hours)

Week 3: Mon-Thurs 8:30-12:30

*The workshop is free for Cal Poly affiliated teachers and Western Regional Noyce participants and alumni, and they are also eligible for a $250 stipend. Please contact cesame@calpoly.edu for discount code and to provide payment information.


NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

Unfortunately, due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Cal Poly has canceled all in-person classes, including our modeling workshops, for the summer of 2020. Thank you for your understanding. 

We will offer an online Chemistry II Course (see details below). 

We plan to offer the modeling workshops in the summer of 2021. We hope to see you then.


MODELING WORKSHOPS 2020 CANCELED: July 6 - July 17, 2020
Cal Poly University’s Center for Engineering, Science, and Mathematics Education (CESAME) and the NOYCE Western Regional are pleased to offer three concurrent 2-week professional development courses this summer in:

  • Physics Modeling II - Waves
  • Chemistry Modeling II
  • Biology Modeling I

These workshops are structured inquiry approaches to high school chemistry, physics and physical science 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 and/or chemistry using the Modeling Method.
 

Please view the Summer Modeling 2020 details below

 

Dates and Times: July 6th - July 17th.  
Monday - Friday 8:30 - 3:30p.m.

Sponsors

This Modeling series is funded by two grants:

•CESAME Cotchett Educational Grant
•Western Regional Noyce Initiative (WRNI)

CESAME and WRNI are providing funding that allows us to waive the registration cost and provide a stipend for local teachers and selected Noyce scholars and alumni.In addition, WRNI has provided funding to support traveling for a limited number of Noyce participants. Noyce scholars will be notified if they are selected, and will be given instructions regarding the funds available to assist them with their travel.

$250 stipend will be included for:
•Selected Noyce Scholars/Alumni (can also qualify for travel expenses)
