Science Lecture Series
Environmental Challenges: Holden Arboretum Scientist Lectures & Classroom Application
Delve Deeper into the current environmental issues, conditions and challenges that impact the natural world around us. This series of five Scientist lectures will allow you to step back into the classroom and learn from experts at Holden, Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University, The University of Pittsburgh and The Morton Arboretum. This embedded class is designed to allow you to connect what you learn with your classroom. Not only will you further your own knowledge about current research by learning from experts in the field, but you will research and design ways to apply this new found information to your current classroom practices.
You will be able to select the number of lectures you will attend. That will determine the time you need to spend out of class researching, analyzing, planning and designing how to incorporate these topics into your current teaching assignment. Each session will be held from 7 -9 pm.
