The University of Washington (UW) hosted a curriculum development institute
for teachers July 8 - 25 1996 on the UW campus. The Institute facilitated
collegiality among a group of selected K-12 teachers, enhanced the teachers'
understanding of Earth and space science concepts, expanded teachers' expertise
in Internet-based teaching, and supported the development of educational
modules to be posted on the World Wide Web (WWW). Teachers met, shared experiences,
worked collaboratively, grew pedagogically, increased knowledge, explored
topics of their choosing, created a personal Web site, and had opportunities
for reflection and continuance. SCI staff will hold follow-up sessions throughout
the school year to support curricular implementation and to investigate
learning and teaching via the WWW.
