Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "I am grateful for the visual resources and videos which help me understand much better. I have taken a few NSTA webinars during the pandemic, so I am eager to get back in the classroom to apply what I have learned."
  • "What I enjoyed the most was seeing how to collaborate with colleagues to implement OpenSciEd. Giving us ways to practice discussions and be ready to facilitate was pretty phenomenal."
  • "I appreciated the video examples and opportunities to chat with others and see/hear ideas and perspectives."
  • "The questions posed and discussions made were appropriate to the need we have in our classrooms. It did not feel like OpenSciEd was trying to sell their program, but trying to guide our professional development in the 3D direction. Great work!"

A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My Profile page in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.
