In a prior newsletter, I shared some ideas for teaching math remotely, including different whiteboard tools and online graphs/simulations. I have collected here some resources for science teaching - lots of interactive activities like virtual labs, simulations, and field trips, in addition to more static OER text-based activities.

All sciences

Biology

  • Here’s an article discussing various virtual dissection options

  • American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) article about shifting biology classes online - addressing both different science tools and broader pedagogy concerns

  • University of Utah’s Genetic Science Learning Center has a student-facing site, Learn Genetics, and a teaching-facing site, Teach Genetics, that offer complementary online lessons and teacher materials for teaching genetics and health

Chemistry

Earth Sciences (Ecology, Environmental Science, Geology…)

Engineering

Psychology
