For teachers taking Eric Lander’s MOOC, 7.00x Introduction to Biology – The Secret of Life, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has collaborated with MITx to broaden the reach and impact of the course by offering great resources that complement the course materials.
NSTA will be hosting web seminars, which Professor Lander will participate in, to discuss course topics and how to better teach particular concepts. Below are links to information about the supporting components NSTA is offering for the course.
- Three pedagogical-focused web seminars by NSTA press authors with MIT professors
- Digital resources for teaching the concepts to your students
- Moderated community discussion forum on biological pedagogy
- An optional pedagogical certificate to showcase your knowledge via this open course
This collaboration is just one of the unique approaches being taken in the 7.00x course. We’ll share more on others in future posts.
