      The Evolving Brain - The University of Arizona's College of Science Lecture Series

      Course Overview

      ECOL 596s is structured as a 2-unit graduate course with discussion, lecture and activities on the teaching of science in a high school classroom. The course is focused around an evening speaker series offered through the College of Science.

       

      Teacher-participants meet once a week for three hours in the evening. In the first hour the class participates in an activity for teaching science in a high school science classroom or a presentation on a K–12 outreach opportunity at the UA. In the second hour the class attends the College of Science The Evolving Brain lecture. The third hour consists of discussion of the lecture and its application to the high school classroom.

       

      This course is structured for science teachers at the high school level, but K–12 teachers at all levels are invited to participate. Pre-service teachers who are not yet certified may also take the course and earn undergraduate credit. Teachers earn two units of graduate credit.

       

      Tuition and Fees
      100% tuition (two units) is paid by the College of Science through funding provided by Research Corporation for Science Advancement.
