Participants will be introduced to a best-practices, didactic model for design of effective online science education programs, at the meta level, and courses, at the operational level. The model, which incorporates a science valuation framework, Disciplinary Content Object Model (DCOM), and neuro-cognitive paradigm, is grounded in contemporary theory of, and practice in, both general human learning and science-specific learning. It incorporates the elements of practical work, knowledge transfer and collaboration structures; essential to science learning, but challenging to operationalize online. Options in extant technologies useful in online science learning, as well as promising emerging technologies are couched within operational realities and limitations. Participants will use tools and forms in small groups to examine an existing science program or course, or begin to design a new science program or course.
