Here's a free webinar for you to attend if you're interested.
Friday, April 27, 2012
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. US ET
Helen Quinn, Professor of Physics at Stanford University and Education and Public Outreach Manager at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), will outline the Framework for K-12 Science Education that is the basis of the coming Next Generation Science Standards. Helen will discuss aspects of the Framework that are of interest when thinking about physics teacher preparation.Long-time readers of this blog would have recalled that Helen Quinn wrote one of the most compelling essays that I've come across, and I've asked everyone to read it. If you haven't, this is a good reminder for you to do so if you missed it the first time around.
Noah Finkelstein, associate professor of physics and director of the Physics Education Research group at UC Boulder, will moderate the discussion.
