Facilitating Conversations & Enhancing Learning

Wednesdays, January 10 – February 7, 2018
4:00pm – 7:00pm

What role does talking have in enhancing learning? How can informal educators design and facilitate conversations that help learners transfer their learning from an abstract idea into a concrete concept?

Educators will explore how talking helps people transfer knowledge into long-term storage areas of the brain. They will then build off of proven strategies for facilitating conversations and how they can be adapted to their unique teaching environments. During this series, educators participate in activities to explore what learning research looks like in practice, and use videos of themselves teaching to reflect upon and brainstorm ways to strengthen their interactions with learners.

This workshop series is part of the Reflecting on Practice program.

About Reflecting on Practice workshops

Reflecting on Practice is comprised of nationally recognized informal educator workshops that give educators a time and a place to focus on how people learn. The goal of the program is to build a culture of reflection and help educators take advantage of structures that allow them to incorporate research on learning into their teaching practices. The curriculum organizes knowledge from the learning sciences into three topic areas for participants to explore.

Educators need to commit to all five sessions in a single series and can do just one series, or all of them.

The cost is $50 per person per series, and scholarships are available. All sessions take place at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

Exploring Phenomena: Using Science to Figure Things Out (grades K-12) @ California Academy of Sciences
Feb 3 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

What is meant by “real-world phenomena” and how can they anchor learning in science and engineering? In this workshop, you will build your understanding of what phenomenon-based science can be, and how to start making it happen in your classroom.

More About the Event

“How did the Grand Canyon form?” “Where did the mass of the apple go when I threw it in the compost?” These questions about real-world phenomena are great examples of how science can be used for figuring things out. In this workshop you will participate as a learner in a phenomenon-based lesson, then unpack your experience with fellow educators. You will build understanding and gain tools and strategies to help you choose phenomena and craft essential questions that can guide your students to “figure things out” about the real world.

Matter of Memory @ Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, UC Santa Barbara @ University of California, Santa Barbara
Feb 17 all-day

AUDIENCE: high school physics teachers

COST: $35 registration fee. Some funds are available to assist with travel expenses.

We are all familiar with the memories that are stored in the connections of neurons within our brains. Certain experiences are indelible even if experienced only once while others need many repetitions in order to be reliably recalled. We are likewise familiar with memories stored on a sheet of paper (by pencil marks) or with digitized information in a computer stored in the form of bits. Memories are stored in physical as well as biological matter.

Both in biology and in materials science, memory formation takes many forms. Not only do we remember facts and feelings but we are also able to remember how to do certain activities by constant and frequent repetition. It seems unlikely that we store such “muscle memory” in our brains in the same fashion that we store our home address or cell-phone number. In materials, we can read out information that has been stored in a digital fashion; magnets store information of the largest field to which they have been subjected. A less common example occurs in the aging and rejuvenation of glasses. A glass can remember its cooling history: it has a memory of the temperature at which the cooling was halted before it was cooled to much lower temperature. The memory is retrieved upon reheating.

Systems render information about their formation and training, information which is erased after they relax to equilibrium. In other words, a system that has not fully relaxed has the potential to retain memories of its creation. Out-of-equilibrium systems may form memories by falling into a recognizable set of states in a vast, rugged energy landscape. This Teachers’ Conference will look at what is common in these diverse systems, and will perhaps point the way forward for novel ways for information to be encoded in matter.

Experiencing the Levels of Inquiry (grades K-12) @ California Academy of Sciences
Mar 10 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

What exactly is scientific inquiry? Does the linear “Scientific Method” we see in textbooks accurately represent how science is done in the real world ? How might my students benefit from different kinds of inquiry experiences in the classroom? This two-day hands-on, inquiry experience can help you explore these question, and many more!

More About the Event

In this workshop, you will engage in your own inquiry project as an adult learner, coming up with your own testable question about one of our aquarium animals, and planning an observational study to collect and analyze data. Along the way, you will learn what the experience of scientific inquiry is really like, as compared to more “cookbook” classroom science activities.

Using your experience as an inquiry learner is a powerful way to understand the challenges and opportunities students may face in their own journey through inquiry. Thus, this workshop will NOT model ready to use classroom activities. Instead, the tools and theory that you will explore during your adult-level inquiry project will enhance your understanding of how to support authentic inquiry at any grade level. You will also refresh and inspire your own curious mind by engaging in a collaborative learning experience with your peers, and by spending time in the aquarium. What better way to give yourself a boost as you head into the final months of school?

This two day workshop experience is designed for all educators grades K-12.

Saturday March 10 and Saturday March 24, 2018
9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Other Perks

  • Enjoy complimentary morning refreshments.
  • Share a learning experience with a diverse community of educators.
  • Leave with a personalized notebook documenting your inquiry experience.
  • Spend time observing animal behavior in the aquarium.

Understanding California’s High School 3-Course Model that Integrates Earth and Space Sciences into Biology, Chemistry, and Physics @ UCR Extension
Mar 23 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

Spend the first day with the writers of the California Science Framework High School chapters and experience a coherent NGSS-aligned Earth and Space Sciences Integrated learning sequence. This 2-day workshop includes a facilitated discussion of the overall 3-course model and the role of integration of Earth science into the other science disciplines. This will be followed by breakout sessions for each course (life science, chemistry, and physics) in which you will deepen understanding of the courses and justification for unit design. The first day will conclude with a guided discussion of the Pros and Cons for the order of the courses and time for district teams to consider their next steps. The second day of the workshop will bring you together again to learn about successes and challenges of your decision-making process and provide you with additional support to deepen conversations around high school course sequencing at your school and district. Resources and best-practices that facilitate instructional shifts required for the implementation of the NGSS for all high school students will be shared.

The 3 Course Model Authors:

Matthew D’Alessio, Associate Professor, Geoscience Education, CSU Northridge

Norm Herr, Professor, Science Education, CSU Northridge

Virginia Oberholzer Vandergon, Professor, Biological Sciences, CSU Northridge

To register for this exciting 2-day event please register at the link below. Registration fee will include parking, continental breakfast, lunch, and access to electronic resources to support your ongoing planning for both days.
