Free Lecture Series - Dr. Glenn Dolphin
This presentation will give preliminary results of students’ understandings of the nature of geology from the beginning of the course to the end of the course having experienced pedagogical strategies emplaced to disrupt the normal “large lecture” course structure. The use of interrupted historical narratives became the focal point of the course inquiry and discussion. With emphasis placed on the “how” as opposed to the “what” of science, students became more critical and demonstrated a more nuanced understanding for science as a process.
The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek.
