Opening Up the Doors of Science to Everyone
- UTokyo Global Faculty Development Research Seminar -
The greater accessibility of scientific information to the average citizen via the Internet requires a shift in science teaching to include an emphasis on evaluating and using information from varied sources. Dr. Brickman will discuss how she developed a test to measure skills related to interpreting scientific information, and how she then redesigned her courses to provide opportunities for students to engage in scientific issues relevant to real-world situations. She will describe the methods she uses to enact this type of teaching in very large enrollment (>300 students) sections of university courses, and how her research has evaluated the success of students coordinating and co-laboring to complete assignments. Specifically, she has examined whether collaboration benefits all students across a range from the highest to the lowest abilities, how students perceive the benefits of collaboration, and if groups that collaborate better exhibit better learning.
We welcome you to participate in this seminar!
