Serendip's forums sometimes get longer than what can conveniently be accessed and displayed. They are, at the same time, in their entirety an important part of what Serendip has become at any given time (and, of course, particular contributions may well be of lasting significance). To try and balance needs for easy display and those of continuous and permanent record, only this year's forum comments are displayed on this page with earlier comments being preserved elsewhere.

I'm a graduate student and I'm looking for learning strategies to help teach post graduates science. I would like it to have a workplace training and development of science, i.e., how do you teach chemists the latest EPA test they will be running. I don't think learning strategegies like Problem Based Learning or Constructivism work well on adult learners with a higher education. Does anyone know about any references in this area? I would think teaching scientists would be pretty cut and dry. I'm thinking they really don't need (or want) to break into groups and develop a conceptual map!!!! Please help - Jeanne

I wonder if anyone would be interested in interdialogging on Dynamic-Scientific Philosophy. It seems that this Forum is not visited. Therefore, I will not return, unless I get an @. Jacob
