Teaching science as a verb requires learner-centered resources. HHMI BioInteractive has developed dozens of free, quality, digital resources that can be used in your face-to-face, blended, and online classroom. In this workshop, we will explore some of the BioInteractive virtual labs, interactives, activities, and videos that align with Science 10, Life Sciences 11, and Anatomy & Physiology 12. Come experience some of these activities and fill up your toolkit!
High School (9-12)
As one of the founders of Quest University Canada, I have had the opportunity to develop over a dozen undergraduate courses in topics as far-ranging as astrobiology, infectious diseases, and nutrition. My favorite approach to teaching and learning is using case studies. After a decade at Quest in a range of roles, I took on the challenge of vice president of science at TELUS World of Science in Edmonton, one of the largest science centers in Canada. There, I worked to create opportunities for researchers to share their passion for their work with the public. After that, I focused on adult education, heading up the school of Continuing Studies at Capilano University in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. What I love about BioInteractive resources is that they are exceptionally high-quality, and are accessible to all learners and instructors free of charge. The resources about the evolution of skin color are my favorite. In my spare time, I read voraciously about the future of higher education.
