Seminars-Workshops

Welcome!

To help communicate findings from my action research and to share related pedagogical resources, I can (sometimes with graduate students and/or teachers) conduct seminars and/or workshops (‘outreach’) related to science and technology education – mostly focusing on uses of STEPWISE pedagogy for preparing students to independently and creatively develop and implement RiNA projects to help overcome STSE harms of their concern.

To arrange such outreach, covering only long-distance travel expenses, write to me at larry.bencze@utoronto.ca.

Possible Seminar/Workshop Topics
The table below provides linked descriptions of some topics that are generally or more specifically related to stages of the STEPWISE schema. We can conduct seminars and/or workshops directly related to these topics, some combinations of them or related ones suggested by you.

Sample Outreach

Academic Seminars

Graduate Education Class, University of Ottawa

International Science Education Symposium, Jaén, Spain

Teacher Workshops

Since 2006, when the STEPWISE framework was developed, graduate students, teachers and I have conducted numerous workshops for teachers – mostly at the secondary school level. We do not have video recordings of any of these, but the video at right may give you an idea about composition of the team that could conduct further such workshops. If you would like to arrange for a STEPWISE-based workshop dealing with topics like those above or those you suggest, write to me at larry.bencze@utoronto.ca.
