The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Working through Difficult Concepts in the Explore Science: Earth and Space Toolkit
Visitors bring different experiences and knowledge to the activity table, which sometimes helps and sometimes adds confusion to their learning. In this online workshop, learn how to identify common patterns of thinking (including misconceptions, preconceived notions and vernacular issues) as learners build their ideas around Earth and space science concepts and strategies to best address them. We will also discuss how to use the NISE Net’s NASA Wavelength lists to explore more resources to support building on facets of understanding while interacting with visitors.
