This week we will focus on using storytelling in science to teach the nature of science, science content, and to build student interest in science courses. The Thursday session (which will meet in LISB 217 at 9 am) will read Clough, M. P. (Sept. 29, 2010). The Story Behind the Science: Bringing Science and Scientists to Life in Post-Secondary Science Education. Science and Education http://www.bu.edu/hps-scied/files/2012/11/Clough-HPS-Story-Behind-the-Science-Bringing-Science-and-Scientists-to-Life-in-Post-Secondary-Science-Ed.pdf
To get a sense of the approach that the authors take and what they include, please also look over one of the stories at the following link:
The Friday session will attend the workshop “Scientific Storytelling: Humanities Meets Science” led by Jennifer Yates from Ohio Wesleyan University. The workshop will be held in EMU Swindells Room from 1-2 PM. Hope to see you there.
