|Online Course for Teachers: Teaching Evolution|
This eight-session professional development course for in-service and pre-service biology teachers is based on the PBS documentary Evolution. It is designed to address the nature of science and how Darwin's development of the theory of natural selection illustrates the process of science, and to deepen teachers' understanding of the theory, evidence and processes of evolution. Also, the course provides strategies for promoting inquiry-based learning about evolution and addressing misconceptions and controversy surrounding the topic. The course uses a variety of multimedia resources and interactive exercises (which can also be used with students), primary source readings and in depth exploration of scientific concepts. Each session provides links to applicable National Science Standards.
