(C) Chemistry Modeling II Professional Development (1 CEU)

Course number : DEV10 E830   
« back to classes page
Secondary-level chemistry teachers will participate in up to 60 hours of training in Chemistry: Modeling Instruction. The workshop will focus on an evidence-based approach to the internal structure of the atom, periodicity and covalent bonding, intermolecular forces, equilibrium and acids and bases.  The name Modeling Instruction refers to making and using conceptual models of real systems and
processes (both natural and artificial) as central to learning and doing science and engineering.  Instruction is organized into modeling cycles rather than traditional content units. This promotes an integrated understanding of modeling processes and the acquisition of coordinated modeling skills. The
two main stages of this process are model development and model deployment.  The modeling cycle addresses the deficiencies of traditional instruction by assisting students to construct understanding from observations, by confronting student preconceptions, by examining student thought processes through the process of “whiteboarding” and Socratic dialoguing. Participants will receive both printed and electronically stored versions of the course manual, as well as ancillary materials

Please read:  Continuing Education Unit (CEU) One CEU equals ten contact hours of participation in organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training-IACET). Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are based on the number of 60-minute contact hours for a course or program. (Example: If a course or program meets ten contact hours, you will receive one CEU.) To receive CEUs, you must be present for the entire course or program. Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document your continuing professional education for an employer, association, or credentialing agency. Cal Poly Extended Education will maintain a record of the CEUs you have earned through our programs and courses. CEUs are for non-credit courses or programs. They cannot be converted to quarter or semester hour credit and they cannot be applied to degree programs. If you have questions about CEUs or your records, please contact Cal Poly Extended Education.
