Nanslo bc innovation goes international

  1. 1. NANSLO*BC Innovation Goes International<br />Maybe a NANSLO logo here?<br />By Paul Stacey<br /> Gina Bennett<br /> Ron Evans<br />*North American Network of Science Labs On-line<br />1<br />
  2. 2. Intro – Paul?<br />2<br />
  3. 3. In the beginning …<br />Space Science and Astronomy (SSA) Lab Science Courses<br /> - Entirely Web-based <br />NIC’s SSA courses are taught from a remote community on<br />the BC Central Coast and reach students anywhere there is Internet access<br />The Labs are taught on-line using locally available materials and …<br />3<br />
  4. 4. 4<br />Tatla Lake On-line Observatory<br />TLOO<br />allows students to control<br />a research grade telescope<br />over the web.<br />Space Science is multi-disciplinary,<br />so how do we teach ALL sciences over the web?<br />
  5. 5. 5<br />Web-based Associate of Science (WASc) Project<br />The WASc Project proposes to make all first and second<br />year curriculum required for the Associate of Science Degree<br />accessible over the Internet<br /> - including the labs!<br />We have completed or are just completing the first and second semesters of<br />Geology, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry.<br />The science theory can be delivered on-line with relative ease,<br />but the labs are more challenging.<br />Some labs can be delivered using a lab kit, but some can’t.<br />How do we deliver the labs on-line?<br />I need other science type pictures here<br />
  6. 6. RWSL<br />6<br />(Remote Web-based Science Laboratory)<br />The Remote Web-based Science Laboratory (RWSL):<br />is a software and robotic interface that allows students to interact over the Internet with remote lab equipment to collect authentic real-world data in real time.<br />I need other RWSL pictures here<br />
  7. 7. 7<br />NANSLO<br />The NANSLO project will duplicate our work<br /> in Colorado and further develop this technology.<br />I need other RWSL pictures here<br />
  8. 8. licensing of resources - Creative Commons vs. BC Commons - Paul <br />8<br />
  9. 9. BC Challenges & Opportunities<br />9<br />
  10. 10. - transfer credit agreements - Gina<br />10<br />
  11. 11. - quality of online science curricula - Gina<br />11<br />
  12. 12. distributed RWSL network and RWSL as a shared service - Ron/Paul<br />12<br />
  13. 13. demo of RWSL from student perspective - Ron/Gina<br />13<br />
  14. 14. Next Generation Learning Challenges<br />14<br />
  15. 15. - Describe initiative including funding sources, grant and partners WICHE & CCCS - Paul<br />15<br />
  16. 16. - Present logic model and 8 proposal outcomes - Paul<br />16<br />
  17. 17. - Describe roles and activities- Ron/Gina (ok, but we’ll need to clarify a couple things here)<br />17<br />
  18. 18. - Outline phase 2 possibilities of follow-on grant and expanded partners. - all<br />18<br />
  19. 19. - Talk about the "open" aspects of this initiative – all<br />19<br />
  20. 20. Wrap-up and Conclusions including a lead-in to Q&A<br />20<br />
  21. 21. Part 4 - 10 min Q&A<br />- invite questions from participants- invite discussion on pros and cons of remote web-based science labs- invite expressions of interest in using the RWSL and/or helping with articulation and teaching of science courses- discussion of benefits associated with working in the open, BC based opportunities that come from this initiative- make it known that hands-on opportunities for everyone to try RWSL are available throughout workshop<br />- also mention our new video (assuming we have it).<br />21<br />
  22. 22. Credits<br />22<br />
