October 2010 - The Next Generation of Science Textbooks?

Teri BalserWill the next generation of science textbooks use stories to teach? Will they be successful? Associate Professor and Director of the Institute for Cross-College Biology Education (ICBE) Teri Balser is co-author of a new and experimental introductory environmental studies textbook designed to marry narrative and story with infographics and pedagogical devices and features. The project represents a partnership between Scientific American and WH Freeman, and a collaboration between science writers and science faculty. Join us for a sneak preview of the project and a discussion about the future of textbooks, and how we might incorporate learning through story in the sciences.

Join the Learning Through Story discussion on Tuesday, October 12, Noon - 1:00, Teacher Education building, room 220.
