Webinar Description

Are you ready to rethink your introductory Earth or physical science course to focus on actively engaging students in investigations and productive discussions? We know that this takes work! In this webinar, we'll introduce you to the Teaching with Investigation and Design in Science (TIDeS) project and the upcoming opportunity to engage in this work with us during our 3-day workshop at the 2024 Earth Educators' Rendezvous (EER). In the webinar, you will learn about the new materials we've developed, tested, and refined; how the use of these materials has impacted student success; and how we'll help you adapt them for your setting at our workshop at the EER.


In this webinar, you will:

  1. Learn about the guiding principles of the TIDeS project and the new materials we've developed;
  2. Reflect on your needs to adapt and adopt these materials to your setting;
  3. Learn about opportunities for support to integrate the TIDeS approach into your teaching.



Duration: 1 hour
