“Inquiry in the Science Classroom” is the topic of the second of four presentations in the 2005-06 Seminar Series for Life-Long Learners at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). The talk, which will be free and open to the public, will be given at 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, by Barbara A. Curry, a senior lecturer in UTD’s Science/Mathematics Education Department.
Curry’s lecture, to be held in the Conference Center, Room CN1.112, is designed to give teachers a better idea of what inquiry-based science instruction is and how it can work in their classrooms.
The UTD seminar series was begun last year to share recent advances in science and mathematics education with educators and the general public. Following Curry’s talk, there will be two remaining seminars in the current series – a Feb. 13 lecture on mathematical induction by Associate Professor Dr. Titu Andreescu and a March 20 presentation on science and math education from a global perspective by UTD President Dr. David E. Daniel.
Teachers in attendance will receive continuing professional education credit at the close of each session. For additional information about the seminar series, please call 972-883-2496.
