Professional Development Online Course

Interested in Online Professional Development for Implementing Student Research?

If you are a teacher or homeschooling mom who is interested in developing either an entire course dedicated to student research, or adding a research component to an existing course, but don't know how to begin, I will be offering an online course starting June 4th through June 29, 2012.

Here is a Prezi presentation to help you get the idea!

Course overview: This course provides teachers the opportunity to 1) experience aspects of the research process, 2) design a plan for how student research could be added to their curriculum, and to 3) collaborate with other teachers on topics important to student research.

Course Goals:
As a result of course participation, teachers will:
  • discuss the issues surrounding student research projects

  • apply the ADDIE model to create a curriculum plan that includes student research

  • plan activities to introduce students to the various stages of the research process

  • collect and organize resources that support the literacy aspects of facilitating and assessing student research

  • describe how technology can best be used with their students

  • write a research proposal and learn how to best assess STEM proposals

  • learn ways to incorporate technology resources into the classroom.

This professional development is in the form of a 3 hour graduate-level online course through Illinois State University. Those taking the course will apply to be a graduate student-at-large. Teachers taking the course will be from all across the nation. Come learn from others like you, how to make research a part of your student's learning experiences.
