The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops focused on helping partners share their work and learn from others in the Network. The aim of the online workshops is to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners and create more channels for Network partners to learn from each other directly.

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.

Workshop Presenters

Lindsay Bartolone, M.S., Science Education





Brian Kruse, Director, Teacher Learning Center, Astronomical Society of the Pacific
