2020 Modeling Workshops

20 Jan 2020 9:45 AM | Nancy Michaelsen (Administrator)

Good day to you, science education partner,

We hope you will, once again, share the information with your community:

Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program and a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department of Education. Modeling Workshops™ are peer-led. Content is reorganized around basic models to increase its structural coherence. Participants are supplied with a complete set of course materials and work through activities alternately in roles of student or teacher, as they practice techniques of guided inquiry and cooperative learning. Models and theories are the purpose and the outcomes of scientific practices. They are tools for engineering design and problem solving. Thus, modeling guides all other practices. A short video introduces Modeling Instruction:  

The workshop hosts and leaders are working hard to get the 2020 Modeling Workshops planned and scheduled.

For the complete list (which is constantly updated) please go to:
