Incorporating Free LabXChange Resources Into Your Remote/Hybrid Learning
(Geared toward 9-12 grade Biology, Chemistry, Biomed Pathway Teachers)
Presenters: Tim Blesse, Teacher Program Coordinator, Denver Museum Nature & Science; Jessica Silverman, Content Collaborations Manager, LabXchange; Meg John, Vice President, Colorado Bio Science Institute
Looking for some free field-tested biology and chemistry teaching on-line resources? The free LabXChange learning pathways from Harvard can be used “as is”, or you can incorporate them into your existing lesson storylines. The free videos, simulations, virtual labs, and organizational tools have been proven to increase two things we find challenging in these remote and hybrid learning environments : student engagement and agency. Get ahead of the curve with this nationally recognized, research-based, inquiry teaching approach. Experience LabXChange’s resources in a workshop led by a former high school teacher and national trainer.
This LabXchange teacher training is hosted for free by the Colorado BioScience Institute, 501(c)3, due to a generous donation from the Amgen Foundation, which seeks to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators.
