Dual Credit Physical Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our session is for all dual credit instructors in Physical Science (Chemistry, Geology, and Physics).  If possible, come prepared to share an example of an assignment or activity that you do with your students that helps them to accomplish the objectives of the course, and helps you to know how well they learned and how you might help them better in the future.  Activities that target the general education objectives ii, iii, and iv (see below) for science will be our focus for our multi-disciplinary group.  One example that I recently learned from Steve Korecki is attached.  Please email files to Naysa Shepherd at nshepherd@csi.edu by Wednesday at 8:00 am if you would like printouts for the group.
If you are away from your office or computer and cannot bring an example, that’s no problem.  We will still value your participation and have plenty to discuss.
Below are the official Scientific Way of Knowing Student Learning Outcomes for Idaho General Education.  As mentioned above, I would like to focus on activities and assignments that target objectives ii, iii, and iv.
Scientific Ways of Knowing: Upon completion of a course in this category, a student is able to demonstrate at least four (4) of the following competencies.
i.                     Apply foundational knowledge and models of a natural or physical science to analyze and/or predict phenomena.
ii.                   Understand the scientific method and apply scientific reasoning to critically evaluate arguments.
iii.                 Interpret and communicate scientific information via written, spoken and/or visual representations.
iv.           Describe the relevance of specific scientific principles to the human experience.
v.            Form and test a hypothesis in the laboratory or field using discipline-specific tools and techniques for data collection and/or analysis.
