ONSITE | Saturday, April 20, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The BEETLES (Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning, and Expertise Sharing) learning sessions are active experiences crafted to encourage instructors to look at specific aspects of research-based science pedagogy and to inspire shifts in instructors’ thinking about their own teaching and learning. Developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science, these hands-on and interactive sessions promote a student-centered approach to help participants better engage with science and the natural world through inquiry. This workshop will focus on Making Observations and Field Journaling.

This workshop is for educators (formal, nonformal, and higher education) who want to:

  • Explore different methods and model activities that can strengthen learners’ skills in making observations.
  • Engage in journaling activities and discuss the benefits of field journaling as a practice to support outdoor science learning.
  • Explore best practices for planning and implementing EE programs that foster learning and promote inclusivity.
