SPR 2015 Course: Science, Education, and Society (INTSCI 197)

Are you interested in science education? Would you like to:

  • Deepen your understanding of how people learn science, in both formal and informal environments?
  • Engage collaboratively in reflection, discussion, and practice of diverse strategies for teaching and learning science & promoting classroom equity?
  • Examine societal perspectives on science, including controversies regarding science education?

Integrated Sciences 197: Science, Education, and Society (2 credits) is a discussion-based course that is designed for students who are interested in exploring how science, education, and society interact with one another to influence how we teach and learn science. This course is open to undergraduates at all levels.

“This class was extremely intellectually stimulating because it brought up questions about science and teaching that I had never considered before. It pushed me to research more about different topics and give a lot of effort to my work and contribute to group discussions.”

“I loved how the class built up to a final culminating project that encompassed the topics we learned about. We started the class learning about society things, then we added science to those ideas, then we added education, and then we combined all three ideas in our final project.”
