Online Courses: In online teaching, 100% of instruction takes place online via Canvas and with supplemental platforms like Zoom. There are two types of online courses: asynchronous and synchronous.
Asynchronous online: Course is fully online, with lessons, assignments, and activities posted in Canvas with due dates. Students complete coursework, engage in discussions, etc., based upon their own schedules, but are required to meet posted deadlines.
Synchronous online: Online course that includes real-time class meetings using technology (e.g. Zoom). The number of required meetings varies based upon the particular class, but meetings take place during the scheduled class times. Faculty will inform students of the schedule for real-time meetings in their courses.
Hybrid Courses: Hybrid courses combine both in-person, on-campus meetings with online instruction. All face-to-face activities take place during the regularly-scheduled meeting times in the rooms assigned on the course listing. The number of people in classrooms is limited by social distancing requirements, and the number of in-person meetings varies by course. Faculty will notify students of the exact meeting schedule for their courses.
If your class is not listed as online or hybrid, it will meet fully face-to-face with proper social distancing following the noted class schedule.
This course is a continuation of SCI 100, and will serve as the scientific foundation for Special Education and Childhood Education non-science concentrators as a science laboratory course designed to address the New York State Education Department science and technology standards in biology and earth science for children in grades 1-6. Students will utilize concepts and processes taught in the classroom and in a laboratory setting for the purpose of problem solving in a problem-based workshop. A three-hour lab and one-hour workshop will be held at times separate from the lecture. The completion of SCI 100 and SCI 200 will satisfy the 8-credit hour science sequence for Special Education and Childhood Education non-science concentrators. Prerequisite: SCI 100. Lab fee. This course may not be taken pass/fail. (L09)
Lab included; Lab Fee: $75. Lecture MW 10:25am - 11:40am; Lab M 1:10pm - 4:10pm. MANDATORY Workshop (included): F 10:25am - 11:25am; All SCI 200 meetings in ALBERTUS 410.
This course will serve as the capstone course for Childhood Education and Special Education/Childhood Education majors with concentrations in Biology or General Science and Adolescence Education Biology majors. Current Issues in Science Education will examine interdisciplinary scientific concepts (biology, chemistry, physics and ecology) and apply the tools of science to topical public issues. Students in the education science concentrations must have taken 24 credits in the concentration prior to enrolling in this capstone course. Prerequisite: CHM 105 or CHM 190. Offered as needed.
A series of lectures and other activities each semester to provide a forum for the professional development of students and for the exchange of ideas on current scientific issues and research. Designed to provide an opportunity for students to become acquainted with a variety of scientific disciplines and possible career choices. All science majors must enroll in this course each semester they are on campus.
Dates to be announced. Required for all first year and senior science majors.
