The goal of the Intersection project is to build capacity and collaboration at the intersection of two fields, informal science education and the learning sciences. Our project supports researchers and practitioners to collaborate on educational research, development, and dissemination projects to advance our knowledge of how people learn in non-school settings and to inform best practices in informal STEM education. The project includes work on four themes: Engagement and learning, access and equity, facilitation, teaching, and assistance, and learning technologies.
As online learning gains traction within brick-and-mortar schools, a hybrid model of face-to-face and Internet-based coursework is emerging as the most popular form of e-instruction. But it takes more than computer access to create a successful hybrid-learning program. Join our expert guests for a discussion of how administrators can incorporate online courses into their students’ school days, and how in-person instructors can help make the online-learning experience work better for students.
At the 2009 ITEST Summit, Chris Dede of the Harvard Graduate School of Education presented on “The Five Dimensions of Attaining Scale: Implications for ITEST Projects.” The ITEST scale-up small group has been working with Chris - who is now an ITEST PI - over the past months to situate their work within this model and to identify and discuss key issues relevant to scale-up project PIs, partners, evaluators, and other key contributors.
