This course is the third in a series of LINCS online courses that facilitate the teaching of science in the adult education classroom. The first two courses in the series, Engaging Adult Learners in Science and Scientific Practices in Context: Curricular Planning and Lesson Development, introduce the concept of scientific practices. The third course connects scientific practices to science content and the use of science in adults' daily lives, especially in work and career-related contexts.
The course is self-paced and is comprised of three sessions:
- Using Project-Based Learning to Connect Science Instruction to Daily Life;
- Preparing Adults for STEM Careers via Project-Based Learning; and
- Mapping Science Education to Career Paths.
This course takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete.
