PLS RT & SHARE #NGSSchat #SciEd #TeachClimate

Excited to share the web site for the CLIMATE & ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE IN EDUCATION grad seminar I'm teaching with @jnprezzo this term. We'll share readings, resources & ideas based on our inquiry. #UWClimateEd… Course homepage that includ...
The approach we are taking with the course is that of an interdisciplinary research group focused on education. We will collectively inquire, learn, imagine, design & share our thinking over the course of the term.

We invite you to follow along & join in through #UWClimateEd ImageImage
The driving question of our shared inquiry will be:

How can we promote learning in order to create more just, thriving, and regenerative conditions for all Earthly beings, human and otherwise?

Together we will think across timescales, contexts for learning, and worldviews.

Hey #NGSSchat

If we played the (somewhat serious) game of nominating important science & engineering practices missing from the carefully chosen 8 in #NGSS / Framework, one I would quickly nominate is NOTICING.
NOTICING is an embodied & multi-sensorial practice. It is foundational to making sense of & shaping the natural-cultural world.

It supports wondering, pattern-seeking, systems theorizing, seeking relevancies, tending to relations, identifying political connections & the 8 SEPs.
NOTICING involves careful & often collaborative sensing in context — through looking, smelling, feeling, hearing & tasting. It is learned in embodied ways.

NOTICING feeds directly into the other science & engineering practices.

[Day3: Creating & Sustaining Spaces of Practice]
Q: Have you created or been part of initiatives for #Science #STEM #STEAM #SciComm practice? Are you considering creating one yourself?

Today we'll discuss "safe spaces to fail" and scaffolded experiences to build up your skills!
Why do I care?
As a former academic & now in my work to spread adaptable skills in #scicomm through #comedy, it strikes me how little prep we get to teach or give strategic talks as we make the shift from undergrad to grad levels

How many bad habits do we accumulate b/c of this?
What are some bad communication habits in #Science #STEM you've seen, experienced, or are still working to overcome?

Here's where I used to struggle:
- preparing talks the night before
- going over time
- imagining the audience wasn't even there
- bad PPTs

✂️🐟🎉🏀 Hey everyone, @Science_Baller here! I'll be the guest host today talking about all things #STEMed #scioutreach #scicomm and #CRISPR today! Jump with questions at any time and I'll try to answer them! It's going to be a #zebrafishparty and I'm pumped! 😎
A little about myself: I am a new lecturer in Biological Sciences @VanderbiltU . I teach a section of Introductory Bio (220 students) and 3 sections of Intro Bio Lab (16 students/each). What's the biggest course you have had to teach? #STEMed #AcademicTwitter #phdlife #phdchat
I graduated with my Ph.D. in Biochemistry in May from @RiceUniversity . My research focused on #zebrafish genetics using #CRISPR mutagenesis. My big paper discussed a new #CRISPR tool that we developed which has an increased mutation rate+longer deletions…
