Online citizen science
Teachers, register below to join this free online professional learning session on Thursday 12 September 4:00–4:45 pm.
Join Carol Brieseman, primary teacher and winner of the 2018 Prime Minister’s Science Teacher Prize, and Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub in a session exploring the vast potential of Online Citizen Science (OCS).
OCS involves non-scientists contributing to science projects using the internet. This process can provide a richness and flexibility that, when planned for, offers authentic opportunities for practising science capabilities and engaging in real, meaningful science.
Learn from teachers’ who have successfully utilised OCS in their classrooms and discover the new and exciting citizen science resources the Science Learning Hub has to offer. At the end of this webinar you will develop the confidence and understanding to use OCS effectively with your class to grow student learning and engagement with science.
This session will be valuable for primary through to secondary school teachers.
You will be sent a reminder email before the webinar.
