SO: Uplifted is the free summer get-together for science educators. You’ll get to meet Mike Massimino, an astronaut who happens to be an inspiring fellow science instructor. You can even take a behind-the-scenes journey into how virtual labs are made, hear how your peers are creating awesome courses using virtual labs, and you’ll be the first to get the latest product updates from Labster. Did we mention you may also win some great prizes? Join us on June 24th before you blast off into the summer!
Attend the webinar for some exciting updates from the Labster Product Team! Hosts Mark Fuller, Claire Floquet, Sasha Mathrani and Isabel Tran will describe Labster’s latest product releases and offer a glimpse into what’s coming soon for educators and students in July 2021 and beyond. Topics include:
You’ll explore what Labster’s virtual science labs look like, what evidence demonstrates the effectiveness of teaching with Labster, how simulations allow your students to safely apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios, and why science educators choose Labster to support their teaching. You’ll get a feel for what your students will experience, where they can access theory to learn and help answer embedded quiz questions, how automatic grading works, and which curriculum resources would work best for you. And of course, your questions will be answered live!
Make sure you stay until the end for the prize drawing!
Are you up for some straight talk directly from a fellow high school science teacher who uses Labster? Tune in to get Emily Dehoff’s best ideas for how to get the most out of virtual labs. You’ll also learn the pros and cons of teaching high school science with virtual simulations. You’ll find out how she really teaches with virtual labs, how her students respond, and what learning outcomes she’s had. Go ahead and use Q&A as a chance to ask practical questions directly to your colleague Emily Dehoff.
Have you ever wondered how students actually learn from simulations? As a strong proponent of experiential learning, Dr. Amber Kool decided to conduct research to answer this question. What she discovered may come as a surprise. It turns out that learning may not take place during the simulation as much as after. And even more surprising, students are not the only ones who are impacted by simulations — instructors often find their roles shifting when they teach with virtual science labs. Find out more when Dr. Kool shares her findings about teaching with simulations as well as her experience assigning Labster to students at the Arizona College of Nursing. We’ll open up the floor for Q&A as you’ll definitely want to ask Dr. Kool for more detail.
Where do the ideas for a science simulation come from? Who thinks of them? What are the criteria that go into creating them? If you’ve played our virtual labs before, you’ll never look at them quite the same way again after this backstage journey into our development process. We’re excited to hear your feedback, suggestions, and ideas during the Q&A.
Hear the inspiring story of a fellow science educator who happens to be a former astronaut. Save your front-row seat to this live interview hosted by Michael Jensen, CEO of Labster, with special guest Mike Massimo, former NASA astronaut and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University. Don’t miss feeling uplifted by this fascinating conversation where you’ll find out:
To make this whole event even more fun, 4 lucky science educators will win prizes that will help to relax and enjoy the summer! Prizes will include 3 chances to win a $50 Amazon gift card and 1 chance to win our grand prize of a $350 Airbnb gift card. Good luck!
