Abstract

Scientific Teaching, as described by the National Academies Scientific Teaching Alliance, is teaching science in ways that are: based on solid theory, tested and evaluated and organized in a logical framework (just like scientific research). Key elements of scientific teaching are active learning, assessment and inclusive teaching (or teaching for a diverse audience). The steps of designing a teachable unit (setting learning goals, identifying evidence for learning, planning activities and reviewing alignment) will be described with examples.
