Teachers Domain Professional Development courses integrate inquiry learning with video clips and interactive experiences from award-winning PBS science programs and Web sites, including educator favorites NOVA, ZOOM, and A Science Odyssey. This course introduces a media-rich learning environment teachers can use with their students, and provides models, including videos of exemplary practice, to illustrate ways to teach beyond the textbook.
A course participant exclaims, The different sections are clearly laid out and help give teachers specific information about what is essential in an inquiry-based classroom and examples of how to incorporate these elements into their own classroom. After taking this course I will be sure to pay closer attention to the planning process and I will spend more time trying to identify the preconceptions students might have, in hopes of increasing their understanding.
